Suspected shoplifter leads police on brief I-80 chase, gets away

VACAVILLE — Police were asking the public for help Monday in identifying two people suspected in a shoplifting incident Sunday night that minutes later led to a brief high-speed chase on a crowded Interstate 80.

Officers were dispatched shortly after 6:35 p.m. to the Michael Kors Outlet store at 348 Nut Tree Road to investigate a report of a theft in progress.

The store clerk described the suspect as a dark-skinned Hispanic or Indian man in his late 20s, who the clerk said grabbed some clothing from the store and fled without paying. The man was wearing a Navy blue shirt with yellow sleeves, shorts and a baseball hat.

The thief broke the front glass door with his shoulder as he fled, and then got into the back seat of a white, four-door Mercedes-Benz with tinted windows and paper plates, according to police. The vehicle was seen traveling through the shopping center’s parking lot.

An officer saw a similar vehicle about 10 minutes later on westbound I-80, passing Mason Street. The driver matched the earlier description of the suspect, and had short black hair. A Hispanic or Indian woman, also in her 20s and with long black hair, was in the front passenger seat.

The officer got behind the vehicle and with lights and siren on and tried to pull the vehicle over. The driver slowed and moved the vehicle toward the right shoulder of the freeway, then accelerated and sped away along the shoulder of the roadway, prompting a chase, police said. The officer soon ended the pursuit, citing public safety. The vehicle was last seen on westbound I-80 passing Pena Adobe Road.

Anyone with information about the vehicle or its occupants is asked to call Officer Matt Adame at 449-5200.

    How about because I hate politicians, porker pig cops and the news media enablers. Is that good enough for you? If something bad happens to New York or California, do you expect me to sympathize or care?

    I like when they say they end a chase for public safety. More like bad driving skills

    That's what law enforcement has come to...the public will judge for discontinuing a pursuit for pubic safety reasons, but heaven forbid police or the bad guy get into a crash and hurt or kill someone. Then law enforcement is critiqued for making the bad decision to chase someone. Please continue to judge something you know nothing about...

    You've hit paydirt!! I am so sick of law enforcement blaming Vallejo. They really need to open their eyes. It's all right here in Fairfield. Then when you say it's time to move, they say, well, it doesn't matter where you move to, the crooks are from another area. PD: they are right under your nose. If it was a snake it would have bit you, because you are as blind as a bat. You hear what you want to hear, the crooks live here!!! Arrest them, before good citizens have to take matters into their own hands.

    I would hope Michael Kors has video cameras in its stores to help protect its employees.
