VACAVILLE — An afternoon chase on Interstate 80 that began Thursday with a suspected break-in in Suisun City came to an end in Vacaville. The resultant police activity shut down all eastbound lanes of the freeway for nearly an hour.

Police in Suisun City were called shortly before 1:35 p.m. to the 400 block of Marina Boulevard to investigate a reported residential burglary that had just occurred.

Neighborhood residents said they saw a group of people they didn’t recognize casing nearby homes. Before police arrived, neighbors reported seeing the suspects as they ran from a home, got into a vehicle and left the area, according to information provided by Suisun City police.

Suisun City police, with the help of Marine Boulevard residents, saw the suspected getaway vehicle on eastbound I-80 near Pena Adobe Road. Officers tried to stop the vehicle. The driver chose not to stop, which led to a chase that covered about a mile, police said in a press release.

The chase ended on eastbound I-80 west of Alamo Drive. The driver, Latasha Windham-Orebaugh, 43, of Sacramento, was arrested on suspicion of felony evading. Three male teens who were in the vehicle, ages 16, 17 and 17, all from the Sacramento area, were arrested on suspicion of burglary after police found what they suspect was property stolen from the Marina Boulevard home, police report.

The end of the chase shut down all eastbound lanes of the freeway. The regional Transportation Management Center issued a severe traffic alert at 1:55 p.m. due to the freeway closure. Eastbound traffic was stopped at Pena Adobe Road.

All lanes were open shortly before 2:40 p.m. as police continued their investigation into the Suisun City break-in.

    Amen to that. What is it about all the Perps from the East Bay, Oakland, Richmond, etc. and even Sacto choosing this area to commit crimes. The police here need to shoot first and ask questions later, or at a minimum give all these perps a real good WOOD SHAMPOO. Vigilantes needed in this area NOW!!!!!!
