A 20-year-old man was arrested for allegedly stealing a Tesla from a Los Altos home early Tuesday morning, Santa Clara County sheriff's officials said.
Deputies responded to a residential burglary in unincorporated Los Altos at 5:10 a.m. and learned that several items had been stolen, one of them being a silver 2017 Tesla Model X.
The vehicle was located on southbound Interstate Highway 280 and deputies began pursuing the suspect.
Deputies said the chase ended with a crash at Delmas Avenue and West Santa Clara Street when the suspect lost control of the car and hit a pole.
The suspect then fled from the vehicle, but was located at 6:11 a.m. after officers set up a perimeter and used police canines.
Sheriff's officials are still investigating the crash and the burglary.
