Man arrested after vehicle chase

Huntington Beach police arrested a man Tuesday on suspicion of stealing a car and burglarizing several vehicles over the previous night.

Officers were patrolling the area of Oswego Avenue and Huntington Street about 6:40 a.m. when one of them saw a vehicle run a stop sign at about 50 mph, according to a release from the department. After a pursuit, the driver crashed the vehicle in the area of Nashville Avenue and Huntington Street and fled on foot.

Jason Daniel Geer, 35, of Placentia was located with the help of witnesses and taken into custody without incident, according to the release. He was booked at the city jail on suspicion of possession of stolen property, auto theft, evading a police officer, hit-and-run and violation of his parole.

Officers found multiple stolen items in the car, and six people whose cars had been burglarized Monday night have identified their property, according to the release.

Officers also found a firearm holster and Glock ammunition magazines in the crashed vehicle, but no firearm was located.
