On November 6th, 2017, at about 2333 hours, patrol deputies from the Ventura County Sheriff's ' Moorpark Station observed a suspicious vehicle in the area of Princeton Avenue and Spring Road.  When the deputy attempted to contact the occupants of the vehicle, the vehicle fled and a pursuit ensued.  The pursuit continued on the 118 freeway, into the City of Simi valley, where officers from the Simi Valley Police Department joined the pursuit.  The pursuit was deliberately terminated by the suspects in the 2500 Block of Cochrane Avenue.  Initial information received by the pursuing officers and deputies indicated that two suspects, who were possibly armed, fled the vehicle and entered a nearby residence.  The Simi Valley Police Department responded with multiple assets, established a perimeter and conducted an investigation but determined that information was not correct.  The vehicle was later determined to be an unreported stolen vehicle out of the Los Angeles area and both suspects are still outstanding.  The investigation is ongoing.
