During the course of the investigation, officers learned the suspect, 33 year old Oxnard resident Allen Lyons, had used a fictitious check to purchase a vehicle from the victim.

Officers attempted to stop Lyons as he drove westbound on Telegraph Rd near College Dr. He refused to yield to officers and a pursuit was initiated. Lyons accelerated to a high rate of speed as he turned onto southbound Mills Rd., and continued at a high rate of speed.  He failed to stop for a red signal before turning east on Main St. and accelerated to approximately 70 miles per hour and continued eastbound on Main St. and eventually made onto the southbound 101 Freeway. Officers pursued him on the 101 and through the City of Oxnard in excess of 120 miles per hour.

The information relating to Lyons was broadcast to California Highway Patrol officers, who within minutes, located the suspect  near the Las Posas Rd. exit. CHP initiated a pursuit of Lyons as he exited southbound onto Las Posas Rd. The pursuit traversed through unincorporated areas of Ventura County before reaching the Pacific Coast Highway.
