At 11pm, a Sierra Madre Police unit was eastbound on the 210 Freeway at Rosemead; stuck in 
heavy traffic that was the result of Gold Line construction. The officer’s attention was drawn to a 
Red Honda Civic also stopped in traffic. The officer made a license plate check and learned that the 
vehicle was a reported stolen vehicle from El Monte. The driver maneuvered the Honda over to 
the number 2 lane in a manner that suggested he was trying to evade the officer in this congestion. 
As the officer was attempting to change lanes, the suspect suddenly cut across the number 3 and 
4 lanes and onto the auxiliary exit only lane for Baldwin Avenue. The suspect used this lane to 
accelerate away from the officer. In doing this, the suspect nearly collided with several stopped 
vehicles and used the shoulder of the freeway to go around several vehicles. The officer initiated a 
vehicle pursuit of the suspect and communicated the situation to Arcadia and Sierra Madre police 
units. The suspect exited the freeway at Baldwin Avenue travelling at an unsafe speed and 

turned northbound. Additional Sierra Madre PD units were waiting at the bottom of the ramp and 
joined the pursuit. The pursuit travelled north on Baldwin Avenue, west onto Foothill Boulevard and 
then north again on Baldwin Avenue. The suspect turned left into the Anoakia Housing Complex, 
abandoned the vehicle and ran into the housing complex after scaling a wall. Units from Arcadia 
PD assisted in cordoning off the area and within minutes the suspect was observed walking in the 
area of Foothill Boulevard and Don Pablo. The suspect was taken into custody without incident. 
The suspect (Terrance Draper, 28 years of age) was arrested for Grand Theft Auto and booked at 
Pasadena Jail. Additional charges for possession of Methamphetamine and possession of stolen 
property will be forwarded to the District Attorney’s Office for consideration.
