Bank robbery suspects throw cash from windows during police chase.

Bank robbery suspects tossed handfuls of cash out their car window as sheriff's deputies pursued their vehicle through Los Angeles Wednesday as onlookers cheered on the suspects.

The pursuit began in Canyon Country following a robbery at a Bank of America in the Santa Clarita area.

More than a dozen times during the pursuit handfuls of cash were thrown out of the back window.

Onlookers were waving to the suspected bank robbers, apparently signaling for them to throw more money.

At times the vehicle had to navigate through a mob of people waving at the car.

Eventually the vehicle became stuck in traffic and the suspects were apprehended by police as a crowd of hundreds swarmed the scene.

Earlier, two people had jumped out of the vehicle on the 210 Freeway near Yarnell Street and a search is in progress, said Capt. Mike Parker.

No injuries were reported at the robbery, said Sgt. Daniel Stanley of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department in Santa Clarita.

It was the third Los Angeles police pursuit this week.

On Tuesday night, a suspect was shot by police following an hour-long pursuit through neighborhoods near downtown.

On Monday, a driver led police on a pursuit for hours.

He managed to flee the vehicle and evade arrest.
