One of two people taken into custody following a circuitous pursuit from San Ramon to Walnut Creek and then into Alamo this morning.
Suspect vehicle eventually corralled and suspects believed to have committed a carjacking out of the county were arrested.
No injuries reported, lots of Flashes, emails received as it was happening. Lots of New Flashers signing up so PLEASE be patient as we onboard you all!
UPDATE – San Ramon Police Chief Denton Carlson provided the following after the dust had settled:
SRPD officers were alerted to an outstanding stolen vehicle (taken via a carjacking) at roughly 10:30 am as it drove through the City of San Ramon. Our patrol units located the vehicle and attempted to stop the vehicle (White Audi A3). The driver fled from officers and a pursuit was initiated onto northbound Highway 680. Officers pursued the vehicle into Walnut Creek and then back south on 680. The two male adult suspects abandoned the vehicle in Alamo and fled on foot for a short distance. Contra Costa County Deputies assisted our officers with the apprehension, and the two suspects were taken into custody. San Francisco Police responded and processed/recovered the stolen vehicle. Our officers booked the two suspects into the Martinez Detention Facility for felony evading, possession of stolen property, and violation of probation.
