A residential burglary in a normally peaceful town in Contra Costa County was disrupted by a manhunt after police intervened. Local residents were left shaken by the incident.
The neighborhood, known for its tranquility, was anything but calm this morning as law enforcement conducted an intensive search. Authorities had responded to a report of a suspicious person and, while investigating, caught three individuals exiting a house with stolen possessions.
Two of the suspects were apprehended, but the third managed to evade authorities despite the use of canine units and drones. The homeowners, who arrived back later in the day, were visibly unnerved by the break-in. Thankfully, they were not present during the incident. The residents in this area deemed it the most frightening event to occur in their neighborhood.
Law enforcement has confiscated the vehicle, which was found to have stolen license plates. They encourage anyone with information regarding the third suspect to come forward.
