Employees at the Safeway (Fremont Hub) reported that four suspects (1 male, 3 females) entered the store with duffle bags and stole large amounts of baby formula. Employees advised that the suspects had been seen before. All of the suspects fled the scene in a red Volvo. Witnesses were able to copy the suspect vehicleÕs license plate.
Utilizing his experience, Officer Burkhammer believed the suspects would attempt the same crime at other stores having large amounts of baby formula. Officer Burkhammer drove to Walgreens (Fremont Blvd/Decoto Rd) and located the suspect vehicle parked in the lot. Officer Burkhammer began to organize a tactical response when the suspects returned to the suspect vehicle. All of the suspects left the scene in the vehicle prior to additional police units arriving.
Officer Burkhammer followed the vehicle onto westbound Decoto Rd. Immediately upon pulling behind the suspects, all four fled from the vehicle. Two suspects ran north toward the Fremont Bank and two suspects ran south toward the McDonalds. The suspects abandoned the vehicle which was still in ÒdriveÓ and moving. The suspect vehicle side-swiped a van and continued toward the busy intersection of Fremont Blvd./Decoto Rd. Ofc. Burkhammer quickly drove his vehicle in front of the suspect vehicle to stop it from entering the intersection and potentially causing a serious collision. The suspect vehicle impacted Officer BurkhammerÕs vehicle and was stopped.
Sgt. Alexander and Officer Sanders arrived just as the suspects fled and were able to stop and arrest the two who fled north. Officer Burkhammer contacted witnesses who advised a male suspect was inside of the McDonalds. Officer Burkhammer stopped and arrested the male suspect as he attempted to flee the restaurant. A perimeter was quickly established for the remaining female suspect. Sgt. Miskella and K-9 Officer Dodson constructed a search team and quickly located the remaining female suspect hiding in the bushes behind the strip-mall. FPD Traffic Units responded to investigate the hit and run accident.
