Officers responded to an in-progress residential burglary on Whitehall Lane at 11:40 p.m. The residents were at home sleeping when one of the residents heard someone in their garage. The male homeowner went into the garage and found a male suspect sitting inside his vehicle. The suspect was attempting to turn on the ignition of the vehicle when he was contacted by the homeowner. The suspect told the homeowner that he had been invited to their home for a party. The suspect then proceeded to tell the homeowner that someone had asked him to back their vehicle out of the garage. Apparently, the confused party-going suspect did not realize that there were two vehicles parked directly behind the vehicle he was sitting in. The suspect was taken to a local jail where he will have plenty of time to think about attending future parties.
At 12:48 p.m., Fremont Police Department pursued two suspects in a stolen "carjacked" vehicle. The pursuit ended when the suspects crashed the stolen vehicle into multiple parked vehicles in Union Landing. Both suspects attempted to flee on foot after the collision. One of the suspects was apprehended immediately. The second suspect fled on foot through the shopping complex. Officers from multiple agencies responded to assist in attempting to locate the second carjacking suspect. Multiple K-9 officers tracked the second suspect's scent to a dumpster behind the Tribu Grill. The second suspect surrendered after he realized a Police K-9 was about to be deployed.
Officers investigated an armed robbery at the 7-11 store on Alvarado Niles Road at 11:12 p.m. A white male suspect entered the location wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and a surgical mask. The suspect displayed a firearm at the clerk and demanded money. The suspect fled the store on foot with cash from the register. The suspect was last seen on foot towards Medallion Drive. Anyone with additional information is encouraged to contact the Investigations Unit.
Officers were dispatched to a just occurred auto burglary in the Rite Aid parking lot at 9:48 p.m. Two white male suspects were seen breaking a window on the victim's vehicle. The suspects removed a laptop computer from the floorboard of the victim vehicle and fled the area in a black colored SUV with tinted windows.
