An investigation was under way Monday in Ramona, where a man led deputies on a brief pursuit in a stolen car, authorities said.
The pursuit started in the 900 block of Main Street at 11:19 p.m. Sunday, according to San Diego County sheriff's Lt. Jason Vickery. It ended about a minute and a half later with the suspect bailing on foot in the alley behind 900 Main St., he said.
Deputies searched for the suspect using police dogs and a helicopter for about 45 minutes but were unable to locate him.
The vehicle, a maroon Honda Civic, was stolen from Carlsbad, Vickery said, adding that deputies were working to identify the man.
