Police on Monday found a kilogram of cocaine inside a car and arrested one man after a foot pursuit prompted a roughly three-hour lockdown of a nearby neighborhood.
The driver, Jabbar Lattimore, 30, was arrested after he and his passenger allegedly fled during a traffic stop on Western Avenue near San Fernando Road at about 9:35 a.m., Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.
Police locked down Ruberta, Justin and Sonora avenues from San Fernando Road and Glenoaks Boulevard in search of the second man. K-9 units were brought in to assist, but the man, who was described as heavyset and Latino or white, wasn’t found, police said.
