Police Nab 3 for Pursuit after Reported Shoplifting

The Greene County Sheriff’s Office says they arrested Jason B. Perez, 32, of Albany, Edwin C. Bae, 45, of Sparta, New Jersey, and Thomas R. Gervasio, 32, of Troy after they allegedly robbed a Home Depot and led police on a chase.

On Wednesday, a 911 caller reported a theft in progress at the Catskill Home Depot. Three men—later identified as Perez, Bae, and Gervasio—reportedly fled the store on foot with a loaded shopping cart, before getting in a vehicle and heading north on Interstate 87.

Police say the vehicle took exit 21B, and the Greene County Sheriff’s Office performed a traffic stop on the vehicle. All three occupants all fled the vehicle, but they caught one—Perez—immediately.

The Sheriff’s Office and the state police initiated a search of the area using police dogs. They say they found and arrested Bae and Gervasio at separate locations in New Baltimore within three hours of the 911 call…  ABC News10
