Updated: Antioch Armed Robbery Suspects Captured in Pittsburg

by ECT

The Antioch Police Department is investigating an armed robbery that occurred Wednesday afternoon of a customer at Wells Fargo Bank on Lone Tree Way in the City of Antioch.

The incident occurred around 12:30 pm when the suspect robbed the victim only to flee into a waiting vehicle which fled onto Highway 4 when it was spotted by an officer. This led police into the City of Pittsburg where the vehicle crashed at Leland and Harbor. However, the vehicle continued where it crashed a second time at Leland and Railroad before the suspect was taken into custody and a K9 bite occurred.  It also appears the vehicle crashed in  the yard of a home.

It was later confirmed a second subject was captured by Pittsburg police officers in the backyard of a home as well as a firearm being recovered in the getaway suspect.

UPDATE – APD releases info on incident:

Antioch Police Officers responded to the report of an armed robbery at the Wells Fargo Bank located at 5859 Lone Tree Way. The victim (33-year-old female) was making a cash deposit at the outdoor ATM when two suspects approached with guns and demanded her money.

After the suspects, two males ages 17 and 21, took the victim’s money, they fled the scene in a 4-door dark gray Infiniti. A couple of minutes after the robbery, an officer spotted the suspect vehicle traveling westbound on Highway 4 at a high rate of speed.

Officers attempted to catch up to the vehicle but were unable to do so based on the fact it was traveling more than100 miles per hour. A few minutes later, the suspect vehicle was located near Los Medanos College in Pittsburg, California by officers from the Pittsburg Police Department.

Pittsburg Police Officers pursued the vehicle and attempted to disable it using spike strips at the intersection of East Leland Road and Harbor Street. The suspect vehicle swerved to avoid the spike strips and collided with two uninvolved civilian vehicles at the intersection.

After the collision, the suspect vehicle continued driving recklessly with no regard for the public and the driver eventually lost control at the intersection of East Leland Road and William Way.

The suspect vehicle collided into a power pole. The two suspects subsequently fled from the vehicle on foot.

One suspect was taken into custody by use of a police K-9 and the other was apprehended while hiding in the rear yard of a residence near the area of the second accident scene. All involved parties received medical treatment for their injuries.

No officers or civilians were injured during this incident.

The Antioch Police Department would like to extend its gratitude to the Pittsburg Police Department for their assistance during this volatile incident.

Great job APD…give that doggie a fat steak tonight.

This crime story could have been titled “Armed robbery suspects arrested after a chase” yet instead the writer had to mention “Antioch” in the headline. Antioch’s reputation will never recover with journalism bias such as this.

Thank you to al law enforcement personnel involved. Glad that nobody was injured. The K-9 took a bite out of crime today!

JAY ESS — Antioch’s reputation is IN THE TOILET thanks to the three people elected as mayor and city council (Walker and Wilson).

Poor dog! Feb 18, 2021 - 1:37 am

Hopefully they got all the plague cleaned out of that poor dogs mouth.
And to the guy crying about Antioch’s reputation; the last people to blame are the media. Antioch is a plague infested shit hole and its reputation is spot on.

Get back in your Prius and get your mask on ya Biden backer

LoveableCurmudgeon Feb 18, 2021 - 4:17 am

That’s correct, Ken. We all know crime NEVER happens in Antioch. At least it never happened before Thorpe and Walker were elected. Yes, sir. We all know what THAT means. Woo hoo! Thanks for the educated information

Just when you thought the Trump cult couldn’t sound any dumber you get to read all their silly comments on here, usually unrelated to the news at hand. All you MAGA mouth-breathers seriously need to get off that fake macho high horse and change out of the camouflage. You’re a disgrace to law enforcement, the military, and America in general acting like you support this country while also having your head halfway up Donnie’s Russian owned rump. Get over yourself.
P.s. good job APD

Comedy from the hood Feb 18, 2021 - 3:51 pm

If I understand the line of thought from some of the uneducated posters that commonly show up here;
Antioch being a ghetto infested shit hole and that being pointed out by those that are sick and tired of it is somehow related to Trump.
The irony in these posts is that the ghetto trash only support the complaints by posting their ignorant, unintelligible hood speak.
Antioch IS a shit hole. Section 8 and affordable housing that was mandated with all the new construction is the cause. Now they are here, and they just keep coming!

Hey, Comedy….you need to find yourself a nice, safe, white haven. Say….Red Bluff. 115 degrees of white summertime heat. Cuz life is a changin’ here in Antioch.

Another wanker caught. Antioch is plaguing everything dammit.

RussianHacker Feb 19, 2021 - 1:31 pm

Well, I think the lesson to learn here is don’t go to an ATM in Pittsburg or Antioch. On second thought, just don’t go to Pittsburg or Antioch.
