LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles police are searching for a suspect who stole $47,000 in cash that his victim intended to use to buy a car, then fired shots and crashed a vehicle as he eluded arrest.

Officer Sal Ramirez says the suspect was armed with a rifle when he approached the victim and went through his pockets Wednesday in Tarzana.

The thief then searched the victim’s vehicle and discovered the cash that he was carrying to purchase a new car.

The suspect fired shots as the victim chased after him. Then as he led officers on a vehicle chase, the suspect crashed a car and ran off into a neighborhood.

Police set up a perimeter and searched for hours but the man was not found.

Investigators have not released a suspect description.
