Los Angeles Woman Gets Car Stolen While Planning Funeral

A woman planning the funeral for her ailing mother in Los Angeles County is the victim of a car theft. Mireya Cervantez says she was inside the office of Rose Hills cemetery in Whittier and when she came out, she was told her car had been stolen.

Officers chased the suspect as he slowly made his way through the winding hills of the graveyard yesterday evening. The chase ended about an hour later on a steep mountainside road in the Angeles National Forest where the vehicle went off the road and appeared to get stuck on a hillside. The man was taken into custody.
