Cellphone Store Thefts: 3 Arrested after Car Chase

Three East Bay men were arrested Monday on suspicion of fleeing a Petaluma, California, cellphone store with stolen electronics, police said. Police were first notified at about 1:45 p.m. regarding one of the men, who was seen at the AT&T store in the Washington Square Shopping Center and matched the description of a suspect in an electronics theft at another AT&T store at the Petaluma Factory Outlets on May 7.

Shortly after that call, the alarm at the Washington Square AT&T store was triggered. Employees reported that two men had cut security cables on several iPads and iPhones, fleeing with the devices in a black Mercedes-Benz that took off toward the highway ramps at East Washington Street.

A Petaluma police officer in the vicinity unsuccessfully attempted to pull over the Mercedes and a pursuit on southbound U.S. Highway 101 ensued. The Mercedes exceeded 100 mph before crashing into a gray Ford Mustang about a mile north of the exit to Olompali State Historic Park in Marin County… Petaluma Patch
