Santa Barbara Police engaged in a high-speed pursuit of a vehicle through city streets early Thursday morning.
An edhat reader reports a heavy police presence in Montecito stationed at Miramar on Eucalyptus Lane around 1:00 a.m. Police cruisers were then seen heading south on Coast Village Road and then back through to the north.
It's unsure when and where the pursuit began but KEYT News captured video of the chase after 12:30 a.m. as it went through Santa Barbara's eastside neighborhoods.
