Liliana Carrillo, 30, was arrested Saturday in Tulare County after fleeing the scene and leading law enforcement officers on a long-distance chase in which she allegedly carjacked a pickup truck in Bakersfield, authorities said.
She abandoned her auto and carjacked another vehicle, Jovel said.
'At this point, she is a suspect in this incident but that doesn't exclude other people, ' Jovel said.
Cuevas met one of the children, a "sweet little girl" who asked if she could pet her Chihuahua mix. "She was a ideal little angel".
Cuevas said she thought the girl was the middle child of the three.
Residents in the neighborhood gathered outside to watch reporters conducting interviews, with children milling around in the grass. "They were attractive. An angel shouldn't have to go that way".
"He's also frustrated with the system, because the system failed them", Miller said. "Somebody snapped there, and they snapped in the wrong direction", Cuevas told the police.
