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.

Officers attempted to make a traffic stop on the vehicle. The driver fled and led Oakley police 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, from Pittsburg, was taken into custody and booked at Juvenile Hall for charges of evading arrest and resisting an officer.
