On Friday, November 18, 2022, at approximately 10:41 pm, a Brentwood Police officer spotted a carjacked Dodge Challenger taken from Stockton and pursued it into Antioch on Highway 4.
The suspects who carjacked the vehicle were reportedly armed with handguns. An Oakley Police officer picked up the pursuit and the vehicle was lost in the area of Mission Drive in Antioch. Antioch Police officers located the vehicle parked on Los Altos Way near Monterey Drive and detained one suspect standing nearby.
A second suspect foot bailed into the adjacent yards and a perimeter was quickly established.
An Antioch Police drone operator spotted an individual hiding in a backyard shed, who eventually gave up (without incident) after hearing police canine warning announcements. A third suspect called 9-1-1 to report he was a runaway juvenile and had been in the carjacked vehicle.
He surrendered himself to officers, eventually admitting to being involved in the incident. All three suspects were turned over to the Stockton Police Department, who responded to the scene.
The suspects were identified as:
- Anthony Pier, 19-years-old, resident of Richmond, California
- Angel Oliva, 18-years-old, resident of Richmond, California
- A 16-year-old juvenile resident of Riverbank, California
Officers spent several hours working this high-risk incident utilizing their training, tactics, a police canine and drone equipment to deliver an outcome resulting in no injuries to anyone.
Police thanked residents of Los Altos Way and Monterey Drive for assisting officers throughout the operation.
No other information was released.
