Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department arrested a man who crashed a car into the creek in front of Blackstone Hall. The man was suspected of stealing the car and was trying to evade deputies when he drove onto campus at approximately 11 a.m.

The car was stolen off-campus and the theft is unrelated to Biola. Shortly after the collision, LASD located and arrested the suspect off-campus. The car was removed from the creek shortly after 12 p.m. According to LASD, the suspect was also in possession of narcotics.

Because the suspect was arrested immediately afterward, at no point was the campus ever in danger, according to Campus Safety Chief John Ojeisekhoba. Campus Safety is now working with deputies to provide video footage, as the entire incident was captured on camera.
