Chico Police are searching for suspects in a late night pursuit. An officer initiated a traffic stop on a Honda CRX for reckless driving on East Lassen Avenue before 11 Wednesday night. However, the driver of the Honda reportedly kept driving leading the officer on a chase. Another officer joined the pursuit and a third officer deployed a spike strip on Keefer Road which police say flattened the vehicle's tires. The suspect reportedly drove into an orchard west of Highway 99. Police later found the car abandoned. According to a Chico Police Department press release, officers searched the area, but could not find the two male occupants of the Honda.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Chico Police Department at 897-4910.
