Police from multiple police agencies fell in behind a Honda Pilot stolen from a resident in the 4300 block of Conejo Drive in unincorporated Danville late Wednesday, pursuing the Honda and an associated car with two armed males aboard onto Highway 24 at speeds in excess of 100 mph.
The two armed men entered the victim’s garage after he arrived home, according to release issued by the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s office. One of the suspects stole some of the victim’s personal belongings and a black colored 2014 Honda Pilot SUV. The second suspect got into a white colored sedan with paper license plates and both sped away.
Police said the vehicles fled westbound onto Camino Tassajara and Sycamore Valley Road. Danville Police Officers spotted both vehicles as they approached Highway 680 and initiated pursuits of both vehicles. The pursuit went onto northbound 680 and westbound on Highway 24 before being terminated.
The Honda Pilot was later found abandoned in the city of Oakland in the area of Oakland Avenue and Pearl Street, according to investigators, and the suspects have not been located.
Their victim was not injured.
