A high-speed pursuit that originated in Burbank led law enforcement officers through the Santa Clarita Valley at speeds of up to 110 mph on Thursday. 

California Highway Patrol officers followed a black sedan with four suspects through the northbound lanes of Interstate 5 and city streets just after 8 p.m., according to CHP Officer Stephan Brandt.

The suspect’s vehicle reached speeds up to 110 mph at one point, said Brandt, who said officers were led through Rye Canyon Road before returning on the I-5. 

The pursuit ended on the 5 freeway near Vista del Lago Road at around 8:28 p.m. with four parties in custody, said CHP Officer Tony Polizzi. 

The incident started when Burbank Police Department officers responded to reports of a residential burglary just after 7 p.m. in the city’s jurisdiction and were then led on the pursuit on the northbound lanes of the 5 freeway, according to Sgt. Edward Escobar with the Burbank Police Department.
