Rebel April 5, 2014 at 11:37 PM

Just heard them pass Treat and Oak Grove. I think I counted 6 sirens.

Hope they catch this guy!

Flipper April 5, 2014 at 11:39 PM

They just flew by Oak Grove Road, WC heading towards Concord. 11:31pm

Oceanic April 5, 2014 at 11:43 PM

Listening by treat and OG. Helicopter going east/west rapidly back and forth

Robyn April 5, 2014 at 11:46 PM

calkid April 5, 2014 at 11:46 PM

I can hear helicopters flying around Whitman oak grove area now.

wow April 5, 2014 at 11:48 PM

lol really? 2nd time chasing this punk and still havent caught him? Hoping the word doesnt get out that concord pd fails miserably at high speed chases.

CLAYCORD.com April 5, 2014 at 11:49 PM

The pursuit isn’t over.

Jess April 5, 2014 at 11:52 PM

The WC K9?

CLAYCORD.com April 5, 2014 at 11:54 PM

Concord doesn’t have a K9 on duty right now, that’s why they’re using WCPD’s.

funny man April 5, 2014 at 11:53 PM

did they disturb councilmen’s birsans sleep?

Maple Bar April 5, 2014 at 11:55 PM

Great Job by Concord Police ! Finest Dept in California

calkid April 5, 2014 at 11:56 PM

Just got up and locked our doors and windows and turned on all the outside lights. Copter flying over my back yard every minute or so. The area around Whitman is so densely populated with trees I’m sure it is easy for someone to hide.

resident April 5, 2014 at 11:57 PM

I’m on Sierra Road right now. I just heard a siren right outside of my complex!

Anonymous April 5, 2014 at 11:57 PM

On Sierra which is other side of Fox. Helicopter is still circling above.

Rockcon April 5, 2014 at 11:57 PM

Anyone live on Whitman Ave in concord listening to the heliocoper?

Concordres April 5, 2014 at 11:58 PM

Where is search area right now? From my house seems like Whitman/chalomar?

CLAYCORD.com April 6, 2014 at 12:01 AM

It’s around Whitman, Fox, Oak Grove. Stay inside.

scary night April 5, 2014 at 11:59 PM

Sierra RD 2 April 6, 2014 at 12:04 AM

KenInConcord April 6, 2014 at 12:05 AM

Rockcon April 6, 2014 at 12:06 AM

Just heard that they’re putting on officer on the end of Sierra Court, guys!!!

pufferfish April 6, 2014 at 12:09 AM

I am off Whitman. I hear them too. Turned backyard lights on too.

valen April 6, 2014 at 12:09 AM

My kids are nervous because of the noise off the helicopter

ChalamarOakGrove April 6, 2014 at 12:10 AM

A few people on my street hopped in their car to see what’s going on.

calkid April 6, 2014 at 12:11 AM

We’re on Gilardy/Whitman and seems like whole area is being observed via the helicopter. Wish they’d find this guy with no police,K9 or civilian injuries…. not including the perp of course.

Sierra Gardens April 6, 2014 at 12:12 AM

Not sleeping anytime soon with this going on. I’m all locked up but I still feel stressed with the helicopter hovering. My prayers are with the PD and K-9 unit (and everyone in this area) for a safe and swift apprehension of the culprit.

Rockcon April 6, 2014 at 12:14 AM

Lock doors and keep lights on outside

sierra rd 2000 April 6, 2014 at 12:17 AM

Where are they now?

huey9k April 6, 2014 at 12:20 AM

CONPD better start looking in the canal behind Fox Meadow Way.

Anon April 6, 2014 at 12:20 AM

Helicopter is leaving.

Concordres April 6, 2014 at 12:21 AM

Helicopter left scene? Does that mean they found him or it’s no longer needed?

Concordres April 6, 2014 at 12:22 AM

Nevermind coming back

sierra gardens 2 April 6, 2014 at 12:23 AM

Only one awake and stressing!!

Bob April 6, 2014 at 12:23 AM

Maybe he will think its over and come out**

sierra gardens 2 April 6, 2014 at 12:24 AM

My condo is right by the canal 🙁

jay April 6, 2014 at 12:25 AM

Bad boy Bad boy whatcha you gonna do? whatcha gonna do when they find you! The copters are still circling opposite side of fox and oak grove. How much money do you think this one man is costing contra costa county?

Bob April 6, 2014 at 12:27 AM

String him up April 6, 2014 at 12:27 AM

Sam Y April 6, 2014 at 12:43 AM

any updates…….is he caught yet?

Anonymous April 6, 2014 at 12:43 AM

They are doing a yard to yard clearing addresses on Fox.

What Scanners? April 6, 2014 at 12:45 AM

I thought all agencies in this county went to the digital system with new frequencies not known to the public. So how can anyone hear a scanner transmission unless they have a police radio?

Anonymous April 6, 2014 at 12:46 AM

They just called it but keeping the perimeter.

Oak Grovian April 6, 2014 at 12:46 AM

Still circling…

jay April 6, 2014 at 12:47 AM

I don’t hear any dogs barking like they usually do. This guy must be hiding in an empty house!

calkid April 6, 2014 at 12:48 AM

Sounds like copter left now…. Hope it is over and not that they are giving up or needing to refuel. Want to open the Windows and get a good night’s sleep if possible.

@13 April 6, 2014 at 12:49 AM

The missed several pit stops, didn’t have working spike strips and haven’t found the guy after having several cars in pursuit. If that is our finest we are in trouble.

Scared April 6, 2014 at 12:51 AM

What’s going on?! Helicopters left? Is suspect in custody?

CLAYCORD.com April 6, 2014 at 12:53 AM

The suspect is still on the loose. Search has been called off.

Bob April 6, 2014 at 12:53 AM

They told chopper to leave . Parimiter units done , suspect still ” outstanding”

calkid April 6, 2014 at 12:54 AM

Do they even have a description of the guy? Just in case we see any one walking around this area?

CLAYCORD.com April 6, 2014 at 12:55 AM

Hispanic male with a white t-shirt and a shaved head.

String him up April 6, 2014 at 12:56 AM

That’s weak
Find this clown.

meee April 6, 2014 at 12:58 AM

Omg i want to open my windows now, this is killing me i live i chalomar and im trying to set the alarm.

String him up April 6, 2014 at 12:58 AM

Lol . This trash has a white shirt on and still can’t be located.
Sometimes if u want something done right you have to do it yourself.

Oak grove April 6, 2014 at 12:58 AM

Thank you for description of suspect. Prayers to all for safe night and the suspect turns himself in .

Jess April 6, 2014 at 12:59 AM

Was the Cadillac stolen?

Kat April 6, 2014 at 1:02 AM

Hope the catch him…. Almost got hit pulling out of the parking lot of work by the suspect.

justin April 6, 2014 at 1:04 AM

Are they just giving up? What did they say about pear st?

Wow April 6, 2014 at 1:07 AM

Heard it from the beginning by chance, I can’t
believe the tour this wad took them on. Eventually
back about where it began.
Don’t our Police check their equipment?
Hope they take better care in the future, they
may have gotten him.
394 listeners on Broadcastify, never seen
that many. That being said, hope they get him
next time.

Freyman Henley April 6, 2014 at 1:08 AM

Desperado, why don’t you come to your senses.

Michele Ramos April 6, 2014 at 1:18 AM

Whats up with the helecopter flying here in monument?

Broke in Colony Park April 6, 2014 at 1:19 AM

I hope the check the canal behind Pear St/Gilly!

Wannabe Crimestoppers April 6, 2014 at 1:26 AM

To all the late-night keyboard jockeys who are criticizing the police, it’s obvious you’ve watched one too many TV shows where there’s a neat wrap-up at the end and the suspect gets cuffed before the credits roll. Saying the police failed actually makes you look moronic.

dipstick April 6, 2014 at 2:05 AM

This guy has elluded capture TWICE? He’s either incredibly lucky or has mad evasion skills. Very wiley. Hopefully third time’s the charm.

anon April 6, 2014 at 6:20 AM

This is not going to end good for him. Hopefully there wont be innocent victims.

Smokey April 6, 2014 at 6:56 AM

Well, they may not have caught him, but they most certainly have his car surrounded. 10 or 20 WCPD should all stand around and stare at his car just in case it tries to get away.

Upset jet April 6, 2014 at 6:57 AM

I dont understand all the people who say they are locked in their houses scared because of this guy. Dont any of you people have guns to protect yourselves?

PG&E April 6, 2014 at 6:59 AM

He would have been much easier to spot from the helicopter if there weren’t so many trees.

On Point April 6, 2014 at 7:34 AM

Another reason why citizens need the right to defend themselves outside their home. Contra Costa County needs to get on board with conceal carry permits for law abiding citizens. It’s already clear that LE is more reactive to crimes then proactive. Meaning you have to call 911 and hope the cops get there in time. And clearly this shows that even when they are in pursuit of the criminal all over the city, he can still get away.

ijs honestly April 6, 2014 at 8:17 AM

Where’s the front end damage on the Cadillac?!.. really the chopper n the k-9 lost the suspect?… I’m not buyin it cpd. Cpd a lil to shady for my taste these days.

Scooby April 6, 2014 at 8:53 AM

We live in the Bay Area. This sh## happens all the time.

Why are any of you surprised? Who cares if you heard sirens? “Yup, that’s the police all right.”

Where I used to live there were sirens and helicopters and gunshots all day and night. Just protect yourself, stay vigilant be aware of your surroundings and get used to it because it won’t get better.

Teacher Wannabe April 6, 2014 at 8:54 AM

@Wow. If you’re so smart, how come you didn’t catch him? Great job CPD. He’ll show up again. At least everyone lives to serve another day.

Anonymous April 6, 2014 at 9:33 AM

@String Him Up, Apparently you need to get your application in for the next academy session so that you can become a police officer and show them how to do a search the right way. Get off your ass and get out there! Go on… show us all how brave and smart you are!

Wow April 6, 2014 at 11:52 AM

saying the police failed is the TRUTH as the suspect STILL has not been caught. I’m stating a cold hard fact. If you don’t succeed it’s called failure, look it up and educate yourself on simple definitions.

@Wow April 6, 2014 at 2:59 PM

Yes, they failed to catch the suspect, but they didn’t fail to do their jobs according to police procedures. There’s a difference. You can do everything by the book, but it doesn’t guarantee the outcome. That’s what I was talking about.

anon April 6, 2014 at 5:21 PM

Maybe the Police are being careful not to get shot by the scumbag. They don’t know what kind of criminal he is. Cops want to go home at night too!

String him up April 6, 2014 at 9:49 PM

If I was in pursuit the maggot would be in custody as we speak

@String him up April 6, 2014 at 10:31 PM

Ah, how easy it is to say this from behind a keyboard in the comfort of your own home. As if you have some kind of super Ninja powers that CPD peeps don’t.

cg April 7, 2014 at 8:32 AM

They have the vehicle and I am sure the suspect left finger prints if it is not his vehicle. I do not believe the police gave up. They are thinking of safety and the suspect may of already left the scene. Many places to hide in that area, He also may of called for help or may even live in the area or have a friend in the area where he dumped the vehicle. So finding him would be difficult with out a door to door search of every home in a 10 block or more radius. Good job police for getting the vehicle and I am sure you will have your suspect shortly.

The Mamba April 7, 2014 at 8:36 AM

He might have a complex system of tunnels back in that area, guys, you never know.
