On February 22nd at approximately 11:00 a.m., the Oakley Police Department received a call of a suspicious person at the Diamond Hills Athletic Club. An alert citizen noticed a subject in the parking lot who appeared to be walking through, looking into vehicles. The citizen was also able to provide a description of a vehicle the subject was driving. Over the past several weeks there have been numerous thefts of property from vehicles parked at the gym. The first Oakley PD unit arrive within three minutes of the call. The officer saw the suspect vehicle driving away from the parking lot.
Officers attempted to make a traffic stop on the vehicle. The driver fled and led Oakley PD Officers on a pursuit into the City of Pittsburg. Ultimately the suspect fled on foot from the vehicle and was captured by pursuing officers from the Oakley Police Department. A 17 year old male was taken into custody and booked at Juvenile Hall for charges of evading arrest and resisting an officer.
