Bank robbery suspects threw handfuls of cash from a speeding car before crashing outside a Los Angeles mall.
One person was taken into custody Tuesday after a pursuit that topped 100 mph and moved through two counties.
Costa Mesa police Sgt. Bryan Glass said three masked gunmen held up a Downey Savings branch at about 9:40 a.m.
The men fled in a getaway car and then switched to another vehicle.
The car was spotted and that led to a chase along freeways from
Orange into Los Angeles County.
In Los Angeles, the chase continued on surface streets as someone in the car threw wads of money out the window.
The car eventually crashed into a palm tree at the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza, and the four men inside ran away.
Los Angeles police said one man was arrested and the mall was sealed off to search for the others.
