NAPA COUNTY, Calif. —
A wild chase following an armed robbery at a WalMart in American Canyon ended after two miles with the suspect crashing into a patrol car at a mobile home park early Saturday morning.
Police got a call around 4:30 a.m. from security officers at the Walmart at 7011 Main St. reporting that a man stole a TV and said he had a gun when confronted.
The man jumped into a car and drove onto state Highway 29, where officers spotted him a short time later.
When officers attempted to stop the car, the suspect sped away and drove into a mobile home park on American Canyon Road, police said.
The chase ended with the suspect crashing into one of the police patrol cars following him.
Officers quickly apprehended the suspect, identified as 64-year-old Robert Craig of Vallejo. He was arrested on suspicion of robbery, evading police and resisting arrest.
Before being taken to jail, Craig was transported to Queen of the Valley Medical Center in Napa County and treated for minor injuries, police said.
No other injuries were reported.
