Police in Lafayette are currently searching for a carload of people in a dark Saturn 4-door with tinted windows after people in the car stole computers from two patrons at the Peet’s Coffee location, 3518 Mt. Diablo Boulevard.
The thefts occurred at approximately 3:15 p.m. Tuesday, with one suspect advising pursuers that he was armed though no gun was seen. A young Samaritan snapped a photo of the suspect vehicle as it drove off in a westbound direction down Mt. Diablo Boulevard.
There were no initial reports of injuries in the thefts. Two MacBooks were taken by two black males in hoodies one white, the other red with “Hustler” on it in multiple colors. The men were both wearing red shoes.
Four people, all believed to be black males in their 20s, were inside the car, a Saturn with a possible plate of 4NAY140.
