Authorities gave up pursuing a stolen car suspect after the duo pulled into a Laguna Hills parking structure Thursday.
The California Highway Patrol was pursuing a stolen white SUV on freeways and streets in the Orange County area, Santa Ana police confirmed.
The driver dipped into a medical center parking structure in the Laguna Hills area.
There was at least one passenger aboard as the driver ran red lights, drove on the wrong side of the road and zig-zagged through heavy traffic.
Officers followed the driver into the parking structure near the Saddleback Medical Center next to Laguna Hills mall.
No one was found, so authorities called off the search, police said.
The driver and passenger swiped the car keys from someone's purse at another hospital, Saint Joseph's in Orange, Santa Ana Police Department Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said.
