UPDATE: Both suspects are in custody. Taken into custody on Boeger Way in Orinda.
An overnight search for two suspected wanted for allegedly attempting to ram a pursuing California Highway Patrol officer has turned into a morning search among the homes behind McDonnell’s Nursery in Orinda.
The pair appeared to have been sheltering at a home near Wild Rye Road and allegedly ran from officers after they were a little after 8 am. this morning.
We believe the pair entered the area on eastbound Highway 24 early Wednesday morning, allegedly attempted to ram or actually rammed a patrol vehicle and fled into the Wilder neighborhood.
Lamorinda police converged on the area and commenced a search for the vehicle involved shortly before 3 a.m., but the occupants – a man and a woman – eluded officers.
