Police: Teen arrested after chase from Danville to Orinda

16-year-old boy from Antioch booked into juvenile hall

A teenager from Antioch is facing a handful of charges after allegedly leading Danville police on a pursuit ending in Orinda on Saturday night.

The incident began at about 8:30 p.m. when Danville police officer Emily Neabeack tried to stop a truck with a trailer on Camino Tassajara at Old Blackhawk Road after a check of the vehicle showed it was stolen, according to Lt. Allan Shields.

The driver fled, leading to a pursuit that included other officers but ended on Moraga Road in Orinda when the driver and two passengers abandoned the vehicle and ran away, Shields said.

The Danville police K-9 unit of officer Tyler Nelson and K-9 Rony soon caught the driver, at which time the teen sustained minor injuries, Shields said. The 16-year-old boy -- whose name was not released -- was treated at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek and then released into police custody, the lieutenant added.

The two passengers -- also teenagers whose names weren't released -- were captured without incident and later released to their parents, Shields said.

The 16-year-old driver was booked into Contra Costa Juvenile Hall on suspicion of unlawfully taking a vehicle, recklessly evading police and resisting arrest, according to Shields.

I wish DPD would have caught the people(s) that stole my work van and trailer, off of Center Street, by Safeway.
It was found, stripped and tools taken in Pittsburg.
