Oakley: Suspects Caught During Residential Burglary Attempt, 1 Still Outstanding

Suspect was caught after a foot pursuit by Sgt. Roberts of Oakley Police

Just after 9:00 pm Sunday, the Oakley Police Department responded to a report of a residential burglary attempt on Kings Canyon Way near Sierra Trail Road in the City of Oakley.

According to police, three suspects were attempting to break into a home and upon arrival, suspects fled. One officer was able to track down a suspect and take him into custody about 9 houses down the street while two others fled the scene.

A Pittsburg Police K9 unit and Danville Police K9 unit were both requested to the scene to track the suspects along with the Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff. A short time later, a Danville Police K9 caught one suspect in an open field near Sellers Road. A third suspect was not caught as of midnight.

Police located two suspect vehicles with one carrying about $2,000 in cash. Both vehicles were towed.

No further details were available.
