An update on a blog post we did a couple weeks ago in regards to a car chase around Orange County. A suspect, Maurice Alexander Topps of Laguna Woods, has been identified and arrested for the theft of a vehicle in Santa Ana. According to Mission Viejo Police and Fire News, “The Santa Ana police have reported the suspect is being held on suspicion of at least seven burglaries and leading police on a high-speed pursuit through Orange County while smoking methamphetamine.” The car in question was eventually released back to the owner after the police completed their investigation.
Santa Ana police are still investigating Topps, as he is a suspect in 40 or more commercial burglaries around Orange County.
We will continue to keep you updated on this investigation, as more news trickles in.
