Two arrested after morning burglary, pursuit and crash
SAN FRANCISCO -- Two suspects have been arrested and one remains at large after a home burglary in San Francisco's Golden Gate Heights neighborhood led to a pursuit and a crash this morning, a police spokesman said.
Officers responded at 9:17 a.m. to a report of a burglary in the 2100 block of 14th Avenue, police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy said.
The homeowner came home to find a silver pickup truck in his driveway along with three suspects, who fled in the truck when he arrived, Shyy said.
Police spotted the truck as it drove on 19th Avenue near Lincoln Way. The truck then made a U-turn and continued the other way on 19th Avenue, briefly driving onto the sidewalk, according to Shyy.
Officers lost sight of the truck as it turned onto eastbound Irving Street, but other officers found it again near Irving and Ninth Avenue, Shyy said.
The suspects again tried to evade police but ended up crashing into a parking structure at Irving Street and Arguello Boulevard, near the University of California at San Francisco's Parnassus campus, Shyy said.
Two of the suspects, whose names have not yet been released, were taken into custody, while the third had not been found as of late this morning, Shyy said.
