ENCINITAS–A man suspected of a home invasion led Sheriff’s deputies in a stolen vehicle pursuit in Encinitas on Monday.
California Highway Patrol received a call, shortly after 11 p.m., to be on the lookout of a stolen black Chrysler Pacifica Van. The vehicle was taken in a home invasion.
The vehicle was traveling southbound on I-5 in the Encinitas area. CHP units observed the vehicle matching the description traveling southbound on I-5 north of Santa Fe Driver and attempted to initiate an enforcement stop.

After a brief standoff, a San Diego County Sheriff’s Department K-9 was deployed to apprehend the driver.
