ANTIOCH -- Three men suspected of smashing a vehicle into an Antioch CVS for an early morning heist on Thursday were nabbed following a lengthy police chase that ended in Concord, police said.
Antioch officers were dispatched at 5:54 a.m. to the CVS at 2511 Somersville Road after a store alarm went off, Lt. Don La Due said.
Someone had apparently driven a vehicle through the front window and burglarized the store, LaDue said. The officers then spotted the vehicle near the store, and a police chase ensued.
The chase ended in Concord, where two men were arrested by Walnut Creek police in connection to the burglary. Police did not say where in Concord the men were arrested.
Shortly after the burglary, Antioch police also arrested a third man in Antioch. Police are not releasing the names of the men who were arrested, what kind of vehicle was used or what was taken during the heist.
Anyone with information about the burglary is asked to call police at 925-779-6939. Tips may also be texted to 274637 using the key word ANTIOCH.
