Two flee police in car, get stuck in stairway

Two were arrested after fleeing police and getting their vehicle stuck in a Park Avenue stairway around 2 a.m. Saturday, police said.

Karly Bosson, 33, of Anaheim and Samuel Eric, 29, of Brea are facing charges of vehicle theft, receiving stolen property, obstruction and hit and run. They also had outstanding felony warrants, according to police.

Police attempted to stop the Volkswagen Jetta on South Coast Highway when they observed it driving erratically. The vehicle did not stop for officers and continued into a residential area. Shortly afterward, it was seen speeding on Park Avenue.

The driver attempted to flee down a stairway that turned out to be too narrow, crashing the vehicle and causing it to become jammed. The suspects fled through the sunroof and went downtown, where they were caught by police.

The car had been reported stolen in Anaheim. Police found drugs and a cash drawer from a Dana Point pet store inside the vehicle. The pet store had reported the burglary an hour prior, police said.
