Dublin police attempted to arrest three suspects in a high-speed chase on westbound I-580 early Thursday after they were spotted stealing merchandise from the newly-opened Target store at 2800 Dublin Boulevard.
Police Lt. Herb Walters said police rushed to the store when Target security cameras showed three unidentified subjects using crowbars to gain entry through the store's loading dock area. The suspects were seen taking high-end electronics from the area of the store where cameras, iPads, and laptops are sold.
When Dublin police arrived, they spotted a Ford SUV leaving the rear of Target at a high rate of speed. Police attempted to stop the vehicle as it drove onto I-580 and gave chase.
While pursuing the vehicle towards Castro Valley, police saw the suspects throwing the stolen merchandise out of the windows. The pursuit continued into Castro Valley, where units lost the suspect vehicle.
Target is estimating its loss at about $15,000 worth of electronics.
Police are asking that anyone with information to contact Dublin police detectives Jared Hattaway at (925) 556-4561 or Detective Sergeant Yesenia Sanchez at (925) 833-6682.
