Pair in custody after I-5 chase

Two people were in custody today on suspicion of possession of stolen items following a high-speed pursuit on Interstate 5 that began in Carlsbad and lasted nearly an hour, a police sergeant said.

Jennifer Collins, 27, and her 21-year-old passenger, parolee Walker Contrell, were taken into custody on northbound Interstate 5 near the San Onofre power plant around 11 p.m. Thursday, said a Carlsbad police sergeant.

About an hour earlier, a Carlsbad patrol officer attempted to pull Collins over for not having her headlights on and a pursuit began, he said, adding that the 100-mph chase went from a city street onto southbound I-5, then into the city of San Diego before looping onto northbound I-5.

San Diego police and the California Highway Patrol were involved in the pursuit, the sergeant said.

He said the CHP deployed a spike strip near San Onofre, flattening the tires on Collins’ vehicle and bringing the pursuit to a close.

Officers found the vehicle contained several stolen items, the sergeant said. Both Collins and Contrell were arrested on suspicion of possession of stolen property. Collins also faces evading charges, he said, adding that she may also face a drunken driving charge.
