Police are searching the area of Stone Valley Road and Highway 680 after a single-car crash sent the occupants of the car fleeing in separate directions.
At least two people have been detained so far, and a ground crew is underway for another man seen running from the area.
The accident was reported at around 6:25 a.m., shortly after a carload of suspected shoplifters sped away from San Ramon police officers after the theft of power tools from the Home Depot store, a short chase developing before their car crashed into a power box – darkening much of the immediate neighborhood.
UPDATE: Citizens calling to report police taking someone into custody near the sound wall at Livorna Road. 8 a.m. More than $4,000 worth of power tools were returned to the Home Depot store by police.
