The suspects were initially followed by an undercover retail task force unit, which had been monitoring the Lululemon store, as the suspects loaded the allegedly stolen merchandise into a Volkswagen Jetta and drove onto a highway.
They were then pursued by Los Angeles police before the California Highway Patrol took over, KTLA reported.
"Newhall Units were able to locate the vehicle on the northbound I-5 around Magic Mountain Parkway," Greengard said. "We attempted to pull the vehicle over and a pursuit was initiated."
The suspects' vehicle reportedly reached speeds over 125 mph before crashing. The suspects were apprehended soon after.
