Two people were arrested after a multi-agency pursuit involving a stolen vehicle on state Highway 4 in Contra Costa County this afternoon, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Sheriff’s deputies began pursuing a blue GMC truck that had been stolen from the Antioch area around 1:53 p.m. in Bay Point, according to CHP Officer Brendan Correia.

The suspect was chased west on Highway 4 before turning around at Alhambra Avenue and heading east on Highway 4.

The driver then exited the highway at Hillcrest Avenue in Antioch and fled north, going through several stoplights, and the CHP terminated their pursuit – but sheriff’s deputies and the Antioch Police Department found the vehicle at 24 East Lake Drive.

The driver and passenger were both taken into custody, according to Correia.

The Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office did not immediately respond to a request for more information.

I have been reading for 10? years now.
It blows me away how many stolen vehicle stories you have covered.
Don’t you think it is time to put up a Autolock Pro somewhere on your site?
Is anything 100%? NO. Will criminals move on to the next easier target – Absolutely.

Would be interesting to know if Pittsburg (LPR) License Plate Reading cameras on highway 4 were instrumental in locating stolen vehicle. Same type of system CoCo County has talking about, but have seen no indication or press releases about them being installed.

Am I wrong, have LPR cameras been put in and are in use by the County on highway 4 ???

“In six weeks, we have not only talked about putting cameras, but we are installing cameras,” Pittsburg Police Captain Ron Raman said”

Another police pursuit of career criminals in a stolen vehicle. An everyday occurrence in California, where the criminals are the good guys, and the law enforcement agencies and honest law abiding citizens are the bad guys. It’s exactly what the liberal democratic government wants.

Hey Original G! Do not think the PD really want to advertise the cameras. Some of the critters actaully know how to read and would avoid the cameras or cover the plates.

The good news is they called for a code 3 ambulance for a suspect with a dog bite. Good job K-9’s. Shouldn’t have run dumb @#%$.
