WESTMINSTER, Calif. — Authorities have arrested a suspect they say stole an ambulance and led officers on a chase along a Southern California freeway.

The California Highway Patrol says the pursuit Wednesday on Interstate 405 began in the Orange County city of Westminster.

It ended with an arrest a few miles north, just over the border with Los Angeles County.

Details about the identity of the suspect and how the ambulance was taken were not immediately available.
