A 42-year-old man allegedly driving a stolen truck led Burbank police on a roughly four-minute car chase on the Golden State (5) Freeway Monday, police said.
At around 6:20 p.m., police noticed the man — James Cooper of a Burbank — allegedly filling the 2004 Nissan pick-up truck with gas at the 76 gas station on San Fernando Boulevard and Buena Vista Street, said Burbank Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn.
When police ran the license plate, they discovered the truck was stolen and attempted to stop the driver.
Cooper allegedly blew through a red light and got onto the southbound 5 Freeway at Buena Vista. After allegedly speeding past three freeway exits, the suspect exited Burbank Boulevard.
