Vacaville pursuit leads to arrest of T-Mobile robbery suspects
VACAVILLE (KTVU/BCN) - Four juveniles were arrested Sunday afternoon on suspicion of robbing a T-Mobile store.
Employees of the store at 1639 E. Monte Vista Ave. in the Nut Tree Plaza gave police a description of the suspects' vehicle that drove away west on Interstate Highway 80.
The driver went against traffic and collided with another vehicle near Alamo Drive, and the suspects fled from the vehicle.
One suspect was quickly apprehended, police said.
California Highway Patrol air and patrol units and Solano County sheriff's deputies responded, and witnesses pointed authorities to the direction the three remaining suspects were seen running.
A police dog located one suspect in tall brush along a steep hillside.
The other two suspects fled through the woods to Pena Adobe Park with officers in pursuit.
A park patron loaned an officer a bicycle, and the last two suspects were taken into custody on a hillside, police said.
Two people on horseback helped police find the phones and electronics the suspects stole and had discarded in the brush during their escape attempt, police said.
