By City News Service

A 19-year-old suspected car burglar was arrested Oct. 11 at the end of a North County road chase during which he allegedly used the SUV he was driving to ram a patrol vehicle, leaving a deputy with minor injuries.

The pursuit began at about 4:15 a.m., after sheriff’s personnel went to the 700 block of San Mario Drive in Solana Beach to investigate a report that suspicious-looking people were checking the doors of vehicles parked along the road, Lt. Kenn Nelson said.

As the deputies arrived in the neighborhood, a small sport-utility vehicle with at least three people in it sped off, according to Nelson. The patrol personnel gave chase and tried to pull over the driver, who allegedly refused to yield.
