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.
What are you shoplifting at six am? NoDoz and coffee?
I wish you guys had a “angry” emoji.
@Kaye – Working on it!
Fine upstanding members of society — ruining it for everyone else one blackout at a time.
Maybe if they’re willing to get up that early they could go to work somewhere. No.
Well since they stole over $950 worth, they won’t get the prop 47 free pass from jail. They’ll probably serve a few weeks in jail. Our California judges have endless comparison for this type. (misguided, if you ask me, as it’s not helping the criminal, nor society)
