A crew of thieves that targeted Home Depot stores along the West Coast was arrested by Hercules police, bringing to an end a multi-million-dollar fraud ring, authorities said Monday.
The crashes were triggered about 8:20 p.m. when a Honda Accord with a flat tire stopped in the #1 lane of westbound I-80 west of Willow Avenue.
The man, whose name was not immediately released, was headed east on I-80 at about 12:40 p.m. Saturday when, at the split onto eastbound Highway 4 his Dodge Dakota pickup veered right across several traffic lanes and into a field near the interchange, the CHP said.
Officers with the Hercules Police Department responded Tuesday at 11:01 p.m. to a report of an armed robbery in the 100 block of Poppy Court.
On normally quiet north front street in Hercules, a family remains traumatized by what appears to be a very dangerous prank called Swatting.
