Roadway Chaos And The “Crazy Ivan” – Suspected Starbucks Robbers Attempt To Outrun CHP Helicopter

SHARE

Three people suspected of an armed robbery at a Hercules Starbucks location were arrested after a circuitous, multi-city pursuit Wednesday afternoon.

Wrong-way and other evasive driving techniques this site has dubbed “The Crazy Ivan” in homage to Courtney B. Vance’s portrayal of sonarman Ronald “Jonesy” Jones in The Hunt for Red October came into play – but to no avail.

Police in Hercules reported the robbery of the Willow Avenue Starbucks at about 1 p.m., an armed man wearing a mask and orange safety vest fleeing with a large amount of cash in a gray BMW sedan that headed toward I-80.

An officer spotted the car and the depicted chase ensued, everything recorded by a CHP helicopter, until the armed suspect and two women with him were taken into custody by Hercules police.

  1. I’m surprised at the number of crime stories that involve the description of the criminals car as either a Mercedes or BMW.
    It used to always be Fords or Chevys.
    I guess crime does pay now.
