CHP Arrests Fifth Person in Connection with High-Speed Chase that Ended in Martinez

A fifth suspect was arrested in connection with a high-speed chase that started in the Sacramento area and ended in Martinez on Wednesday, a California Highway Patrol officer said today.

Officers arrested Anthony Dewayne Domino, 21, and Anthony James Tyree, 23, both of San Francisco, Sharde Shenay Suwannabart-Smith, 24, and Sean Donyell McCullough II, 23, both of Oakland, and Summer Pavielle Sawyer, 30, of San Mateo, following the early morning chase, CHP Officer John Fransen said.

The chase exceeded speeds of 100 mph with suspects considered armed and dangerous. Officers later found a “considerable amount of jewelry” and weapons associated with the pursuit, Fransen said.

He declined to say what kind of weapons were inside the car, saying the matter was under investigation and that it could turn into a federal case.

Fransen said the Contra Costa County CHP office is coordinating the investigation into the potentially stolen items with the Denver Police Department out of Colorado, as well as the Folsom and Chico police departments.

Contra Costa County CHP officers started following a Cadillac SRX around 2:55 a.m. Wednesday after CHP officers had been trailing the car from the Sacramento area, Fransen said.

CHP officers deployed a spike strip on southbound Interstate Highway 680 near Bayshore Road in Benicia before the bridge, according to the CHP.

The Cadillac hit the spike strip and then continued across the bridge before exiting on Arthur Road in an unincorporated area near Martinez, Fransen said.

Officers initially said they were searching for two men and two women who had fled on foot after the car veered off of the roadway and crashed into a fence, Fransen said.

Fransen said a fifth suspect, a man, was later located as a result of the pursuit.

One of the two women suffered injuries related to being bitten by a police dog, Fransen said. She was treated at a hospital and later cleared for booking, he said.

The five suspects were booked into county jail in Martinez, Fransen said.

A Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office spokeswoman said no charges had been filed because prosecutors had not yet received any information from law enforcement agencies investigating the case.

Here comes a slap on the wrist due to Proposition 47.

.. the release of these so-called “non-violent” offenders has resulted in the degradation of the quality of life of all Californians. I’m surprised those idiots in San Jose have not made the connection to that law and the spike in break-ins and other property crimes.

Congrats libtards and demtards!

4 Surprised? February 26, 2015 at 7:25 PM

No comments needed, story speaks for itself.

5 I knew it February 26, 2015 at 7:28 PM

Wow…. Section 8 at its finest.

What’s is it with Obama’s sons and daughters committing 99 % of crimes? I guess being raised with NO parents really matter

So, tell us! Did the little ladies have to try to keep up with their gents? Or, were their gents keeping a slow pace to protect them from the cops? Congrats, CHP (and good puppy dog!).

P.S. — Hey, “Sharde” — Your mama didn’t translate your name properly to you, did she?

“Sharde” is SUPPOSED to mean “honor confers a crown,” not “honor confers a CRAYON,” you dimwit.

The jewelry store robbery in Denver, CO where this all started was quite dramatic. It was a smash and grab takeover robbery. CBS has video.

@# 3 — “Congrats libtards and demtards!”

You haven’t been keeping up on your RE-tard group, have you?

#6, Latrina Cleana, is still on the loose. She is reported to be armed and stupid. Please contact the CHP if you see her.

Those names reflect high society, the elite, and professionals from Atherton and Mill Valley.

…. or dirtbags, thugs,and trash from Compton, Sunnydale in SF, or Hunters Point.

Good doggy.

Good work CHP, love a story with a happy ending.

In 20 years names like Dewayne, Sharde and Donyell will be replaced by Debarack, Barackde and Barackyell.

After this they will all realize their wrong ways. They will go to school, get jobs, attain self respect and respect for others and be solid responsible citizens.

Three comments:

1. Good dog!

2. Hope the bite hurts like hell.

3. Nothing good happens after 2:00 A.M.

Good find JR, thank you. It’s actually not just the girl from the KCRA story, both of them were involved in the Martinez incident. What type of hideous crime does someone in this state have to commit in order to spend more than 30 days in jail? The lawlessness advocated by the brain dead liberals in this state is getting seriously out of control.

20 JR February 28, 2015 at 6:37 PM

Thanks Ven!

I am originally from CA but I now reside in CO. I was following the story as I own a business on the same block as the one they robbed.

By the way, there is also this one:

No wonder these offenders keep repeating. There are no consequences!
