Police have recovered a white Porsche Boxter taken during an armed robbery at Stone Valley Road at Danville Blvd. around 2:20 p.m. Monday, a thief described as a Hispanic male adult displaying a handgun in order to take the car.
Deputy Sheriffs were dispatched to a report of an armed robbery in a shopping center located in the 3100 block of Danville Boulevard in Alamo, according to a sheriff’s spokesman. Investigators said the victim’s husband called in to report that his wife had been carjacked and her car – a white colored convertible, 2-door, 2015 Porsche Boxster with California license plate 7JEE656 – had been taken.
Deputies determined that the woman was sitting in the driver’s seat of her vehicle with the door open when the suspect forced her out of the car at gunpoint, entered the car and drove away. The victim was not harmed.
Law enforcement agencies were notified to be on the lookout for the stolen vehicle. Reports that the car was seen heading south on Interstate 680 and then west on I-580 could not be immediately confirmed.
UPDATE: Police reportedly sighted and briefly pursued this car moments ago (8:35 p.m., Monday) on westbound I-80 before terminating their chase. The car turned up again Tuesday morning, ultimately crashing on I-880 in Oakland after being driven at high speed on the right hand shoulder and colliding with a big rig, spinning out of control and rear-ending a truck. Witnesses said two people jumped out of the car and ran into the neighborhood – where they were picked up by another vehicle and driven from the area.
