Three people were arrested this week in connection with a vehicle theft after a pursuit by Pacifica police.
The vehicle, which had been reported stolen to Daly City police, was spotted by Pacifica police on Wednesday around 3:50 p.m. in the 1400 block of Crespi Drive, according to Sgt. Daniel Steidle.
Police chased the suspects for a little over a mile before dropping the pursuit in the interest of public safety, Steidle said.
A few minutes later, the vehicle was found at St. Peter's Church, at 700 Oddstad Blvd., and police arrested the driver, 20-year-old Jimmy Baylor of Austin, Texas.
After learning that two other suspects had fled the car, police searched the church and surrounding areas, but did not locate them.
On Thursday, however, around 9 a.m. officers located the two suspects in the 1100 block of Crespi Drive. Logan Wilcox, 25, and Shannon Wilcox, 23, both transients, were arrested and booked into San Mateo County Jail, Steidle said.
All three suspects face charges of vehicle theft, grand theft, possession of stolen property and criminal conspiracy, Steidle said.
