SAN DIEGO (AP) - San Diego police say 3 children are safe after being taken on a wild ride by a suspected car thief who led authorities on a chase before being arrested.

U-T San Diego reports (https://bit.ly/1juAHhm) a woman told police Sunday that someone drove off in her gray Dodge Charger while the children - ages 1, 3, and 7 - were inside.

The stolen vehicle was spotted by a California Highway Patrol officer on state Route 94 about an hour later.

After a chase the Charger exited the freeway and was stopped.

Police say a 15-year-old girl is being held on numerous charges related to the theft.

The suspect’s identity was not released. It was not clear if she knew the children were inside the car when she allegedly stole it.
