Juveniles in Stolen Car Arrested After East Bay Police Chase

Three juveniles were arrested Sunday in unincorporated Contra Costa County after leading Martinez police on a 13-mile chase in a stolen car, police said on social media.

The white Honda sedan that was involved in the chase had been reported stolen Nov. 19 from Oakland, police said.

A license plate reading camera on Alhambra Avenue in Martinez captured an image Sunday of a plate from the stolen Honda. Martinez officers found the white Honda headed north on Alhambra near John Muir Road; police tried to pull the car over there, but the driver of the Honda instead led police onto state Highway 4 about three-quarters of a mile away and headed west toward Hercules.

The chase went briefly onto Hercules streets before the Honda got back onto Highway 4, this time headed back east. A few miles east of Hercules, just west of the Franklin Canyon Golf Course, the white Honda hit a curb, destroying its right front tire in the process. The car came to a stop there, and the three juveniles were arrested, police said.

No one was injured during or after the chase, police said.

Details about whether any of the three boys are suspects in the original Oakland carjacking were not available.
