Indio Police Pursuit Leads to Three Arrests, School Lockdown

Posted: Updated:
Indio, CA -

Three suspects were taken into custody in Indio Thursday following a vehicle pursuit that triggered a residential neighborhood search and a brief lockdown of a local elementary school.

The pursuit began just before 2 p.m. after officers spotted a known felon inside a vehicle, which sped off after officers tried to get the driver to pull over, Indio police Sgt. Daniel Marshall said. The chase ended when the car crashed into a wall in the residential neighborhood east of the school.

Both outstanding suspects were arrested within half an hour. Their names were not immediately released.
