According to eyewitnesses about 10 or 12 police vehicles had another car stopped on Laurel Road near the Highway 4 offramp at about 8:15 p.m. Sunday night. It turned to be the end of a high-speed police pursuit of a stolen vehicle.
“It was a vehicle that got carjacked last night in Oakley,” said Oakley Police Sgt. Rick Grubaugh,
“Today he was driving through Pittsburg on Highway 4 eastbound,” he continued. “Pittsburg PD began pursuing it. The vehicle took the Laurel Road offramp and that’s where the vehicle pursuit ended, and we took the guy into custody.”
It was a high-speed pursuit on Hwy 4, Grubaugh confirmed.
Oakley PD was there near the Laurel Road offramp waiting for the driver, he explained.
The “30-year-old black male” is “from somewhere on the west end of the county” and “is fine and in custody,” Grubaugh added.
