It looked like a scene straight out of a Hollywood action movie – but this bank heist didn’t quite go as planned for these daring robbers, and RadarOnline.com has video of the crazy high-speed pursuit!
The action unfolded when four armed men stormed a Bank of America in Canyon Country, a community northeast of Los Angeles, at around 10:15 a.m.
After LA County Sheriff’s deputies received the call, a pursuit ensued with the suspects driving a black Volvo SUV. The chase continued on the eastbound 210 Freeway, then onto the Southbound 110 and finally downtown Los Angeles where speeds reached up to 100 mph.
During the high-speed pursuit, two of the bank robbers decided to make a break for it, bailing out the vehicle and fleeing on foot in Sylmar, Calif.
As the remaining suspects sped along the streets of Exposition Park, they were seen “making it rain” with the money, throwing cash out of the car window, causing confusion on the streets as passersby rushed in front of police cars to pick up the dough.
The chase finally ended just more than an hour later at around 11:20 a.m. after the crims’ Volvo got stuck in a traffic jam on Vernon, one block east of Vermont Avenue.
Once the Volvo came to a stop, a number of armed deputies rushed out and descended on the vehicle, pulling out two adult males, one of whom appeared dressed for the occasion wearing a shirt and tie!
The suspects were immediately pinned down, handcuffed and bundled into police cars as a large crowd surrounded the scene, some trying to get into the vehicle to see if there was any cash left. Additional units were soon called for crowd control.
There have been a spate of police chases in the last few days in the Southland.
On Wednesday, a murder and robbery suspect was gunned down after police hunted him down in an hour-long pursuit through downtown Los Angeles.
Then on Monday, a man who failed to yield for a traffic stop managed to get away from cops after hot-footing it from his vehicle in San Fernando Valley.
