SPRING VALLEY Ė San Diego police pursued a car burglary suspect Monday night from the College Area before the man crashed his pickup and ran, vanishing into the neighborhood.

Officers said they got onto the trail of the man when he was seen taking property out of a truck at El Cajon Boulevard and Montezuma Road shortly after 11 p.m.

With police on his tail, he sped into Spring Valley, going 65 mph on residential streets until he lost control of his truck at Austin and Montemar drives.

Officers and sheriff's deputies combed back yards and a canyon for an hour but failed to find the man.
