ONTARIO, Calif. – Two home invasion robbery suspects were arrested on Thursday night after leading officers on a dispute in a stolen vehicle.
At around 10:15 p.m., Ontario Police were dispatched to a disturbance call in the 3200 block of South Centurion Place. The reporting party told dispatchers that two masked men were witnessed running from a garage. Within three minutes, an Ontario Police officer located the vehicle as it was leaving the area. The officer attempted to conduct a felony traffic stop, but the driver did not stop, leading officers on a short pursuit. During the pursuit, one of the suspects discarded a handgun from the vehicle. Officers were able to recover the gun.
The male driver yielded a short time later and was taken into custody without incident. The second suspect exited the vehicle and fled on foot during the pursuit. “An extensive search, involving two canine teams and a police helicopter was conducted in the area,” Police officials said. “The search was successful and after about three hours, the suspect was taken into custody using a police canine.”
It was determined that the suspects fled in a vehicle that belonged to the victim, which was taken during the robbery. Two adult suspects were taken into custody and booked at the West Valley Detention Center for Home Invasion Robbery, Carjacking, Assault with a Deadly Weapon, and Criminal Threats.
Investigators are actively working the case and are attempting to gain more information at this time. Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to call the Ontario Police Department at 909-986-6711.
