Parole officials sought Bradley Larson, who was driving a stolen vehicle Wednesday morning with three passengers and methamphetamine inside. Larson did not stop when Santa Maria police signaled to pull over and instead led them on a high-speed chase.
The chase ended in Avila Beach after Larson drove over a spike strip laid by the California Highway Patrol.
Police arrested Larson for vehicle theft, reckless driving and possession of methamphetamine and booked him in Santa Barbara County Jail. Officers also arrested the three passengers Thomas Clutts, Laura Alvarez and Nancy Camacho.
