Thieves struck the Ulta Beauty location in Magnolia Square Saturday, making off with an estimated $17,000 in cash and merchandise and leading San Ramon police on a brief chase before fleeing town.
There were no reports of injuries during the robbery or resultant pursuit, the culprits fleeing the area in a red or burgundy Dodge Caravan with paper plates and jettisoning packaging out the window of their car as they fled.
The incident was reported at approximately 1:30 p.m. At least two, and possibly more, suspects were believed responsible, with witnesses describing them as a Hispanic male in “baggy pants,” and three black males in the car.
San Ramon police terminated their pursuit after the suspect vehicle fled south on I680.
Great. Wife and daughters spend most of their time there.
I knew it was a bad idea to have that store so close to the freeway.
Hard to believe stores can continue taking these sorts of losses.
2 different groups?
Now something happening at Athan downs
Tense situation last night, resolved safely – we’re happy to say.
Letting them get away. shake my head. You can bet they will tell their friends and it will happen again.
We do appear to be in a cycle, Alex, yes. The police are catching quite a few but there are many crews at work out there and some stores are wary of prosecuting shoplifters. So, we fear you may be right…
Thank you to our politicians who choose to go light on crime…and thank you to all that voted for them and for Prop 47!
