This morning, at approximately 1:30am, our officers were called to a residence in the 9400 block of White Avenue for a report of someone inside the caller’s vehicle.
When police arrived, they observed one suspect running from the scene. He was arrested. Another suspect was inside the caller’s vehicle, attempting to steal the car. Our officers ordered the suspect to get out of the car. The suspect backed out of the driveway, on to White Avenue, where a parked vehicle was struck. The suspect then drove back into the victim’s driveway, exited the vehicle, and fled the scene. The suspect was not found.
We believe the suspects were entering unlocked vehicles in the area. We have reports of unlocked vehicles entered on Parkside Avenue and Litzsinger Road.
If you have any information that would aid our investigation, including security video, please call the Brentwood Police at 644-7100.
