The pursuit began after a Riverside County Sheriff’s Department helicopter received a LoJack notification of a stolen vehicle in the area of Limonite Avenue and Pacific Avenue, in Jurupa Valley, the statement said.
The helicopter directed Jurupa Valley station sheriff’s deputies to the area and the vehicle was located.  Deputies attempted to stop the vehicle but it fled, leading deputies on a short vehicle and foot pursuit, ending in the riverbed, the statement said.
Deputies located several additional household items in the vehicle that appear to be stolen as well.  Further investigation is being conducted to identify the victims of the additional stolen property, the statement said.
