Two men stole a woman's purse off her shopping cart at the Lucky's store on Mowry and fled out of the store. While a store employee was assisting the female out to her car, the vehicle trunk suddenly opened. Suspecting that the thieves were using the stolen car keys to find her car, the employees called us and we soon arrived. After reviewing store video, two suspects were stopped by Ofc. Valdes near Denny's restaurant. During the detention, one suspect suddenly fled and led us on a foot pursuit. After losing contact with him, we found him trying to cross Mowry Ave and he fled over the wall into the Residence Inn on Farwell Place. A K-9 search was not fruitful and we broke the perimeter. Nearly an hour later, a witness called to tell us the suspect was hiding under a dumpster at the southeast corner of the Residence Inn. Officers responded and attempted to detain the suspect but he resisted and was Tased and taken into custody. An 18 year old adult male was booked for theft, and the tired 19 year old adult male was booked for theft and resisting arrest. Both are Newark residents.

Fowlie coordinated our search efforts which included notifying UCPD, Newark PD, Hayward PD and a putting out a NIXLE "alert." Hayward PD conducted an outside assist and found the boy at his grandfather's home. He told officers that he rode his bike from the friend's house and took a bus back to Hayward.

At approximately 2:30 a.m., a stolen vehicle was reported on Magellan Dr. The vehicle was parked in front of the home. The vehicle owner woke up to the sound of a "clicking sound" and then heard the loud sound of his exhaust system and engine. He looked out the window and saw his vehicle, a Chevy Trailblazer, drive away northbound on Magellan towards Nicolet. All of the keys were accounted for and no one had permission to take the vehicle. Within about 20 minutes of the call, Officer Madsen located the vehicle traveling on n/b I-880. Once additional officers were able to catch up with Officer Madsen a vehicle stop was conducted on I-880 at Marina Blvd in San Leandro (there was never a pursuit). An adult male (20 yrs./Oakland resident) pulled over and complied with officers. Officers looked in the vehicle where they found a Chevy key in the damaged ignition. The owner came to the scene and took his vehicle home. The 20 year old suspect was arrested for taking the vehicle without the owner's permission. He stated to officers that he had come to Fremont to steal vehicles and was going back home where he would get paid for it.
