A suspect was arrested after a vehicle pursuit and crash in Concord on Monday.

The collision occurred just before midnight when police tried to pull over a truck on Diamond Blvd. in Concord. The driver of the truck failed to yield, and ended up crashing into another car and rolling his vehicle near Chili’s on Concord Ave.

No life-threatening injuries were reported.

The suspect’s name hasn’t been released at this time, but we’re hearing he had a few warrants out for his arrest for vehice theft.

Thanks to “ratstalker” for the picture!

UPDATE: The officers originally tried to stop the suspects because it looked like they were setting up to burglarize a business off Diamond Way. They fled immediately and crashed/rolled trying to get onto the freeway. Both suspects were parolees and one was had a felony warrant. The truck they were driving was also stolen.

Two people were taken into custody.

Smart move, you wouldn’t want to get a ticket that could cost you a few bucks. Totaling your truck is a much better choice!

And…………..he’ll be out before you can say “car theft”……

more importantly, was anyone offended during the commission of this crime? that is what the libs want to know.

LOL KeninConcord – only it’s more than a few bucks with all the warrants he’s racked up. He knew he was going to jail, now he just booked himself a little longer vacation.

I probably was not his truck. At least he was caught.

He will be wanted for a parole violation and probably gun charges as well.

Thank to your lousy elected representatives who waste money on “feel good” or even better “vote insuring” legislation rather than addressing the tough problems like prison population. Oh, but, wait. The prison guard union is the largest contributor to the Democratic legislatures.

So its politics as usual, whoever pays the elected representatives the most, gets their way, and you people keep on re electing them.

Sad, but true

Yes, a parolee strikes again!!!!! Lets build bigger prisons so we can house these dirtbags. Lots of open space in California. They don’t deserve facilities that are better than what our veterans get.

Glad no innocent person/people were injured/maimed/killed. Due to the skill of the pursuing officers or pure luck? Anyway, glad.

Great job CPD!

The perps will be sentenced to 30 days in county and then released after 15 due to overcrowding.

When are these idiot politicans going to figure about that their AB 109 is a complete disaster. All these guys do is end up reoffending cost the State twice as much as if they would have remained in prison to serve out their sentences. These offenders need to start paying for their own arrests and incarcerations because I’m sick and tired of my taxes paying for these people just to get out and terrorize folks.

You should have seen the number of police cars at the Monument on ramp last night because of this. What a poor use of resources because of a parolee.

I’m glad these people were caught. Wish they could find something better to do than do stupid crappy things.
