Fresno County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a man and woman on multiple charges after a pursuit through south Fresno early Tuesday, spokesman Chris Curtice said.
The two were identified as Luis Francisco Abrams, 38, and Brittany Michelle Olsen, 28. Curtice said the incident began when deputies spotted a stolen Toyota pickup near Butler and Cedar avenues. The driver, later identified as Abrams, led deputies through residential neighborhoods at speeds reaching 70 mph. He ran over a spike strip set out by deputies at Chestnut and Church avenues, flattening a tire, but continued driving until he reached Jensen Avenue and Martin Luther King Boulevard, where both people was taken into custody.
Curtice said the pickup was stolen from the 2000 block of North First Street. Abrams was on parole and Olsen was on felony probation. Inside the truck, deputies found burglary tools, several devices used to steal cars, a stun gun, syringes and suitcases with bogus $100 bills.
Charges include vehicle theft, felony evading, possession of stolen property and burglary tools and counterfeiting.
