RANCHO CUCAMONGA – Three of four suspects who were involved with multiple thefts at Walmart stores were arrested on Tuesday afternoon.
At around 3:08 p.m. deputies from the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department responded to the Walmart Store located in the 12500 block of Foothill Boulevard. Witnesses reported that the four black men ran out of the fire escape doors with stolen property in their possession. The four men fled the location in an older model red Buick. The vehicle fled through the shopping center, and went south on Etiwanda Avenue.
Deputies attempted to stop the vehicle, but the suspect continued on leading deputies on a pursuit. The driver of the vehicle drove at speeds in excess of 90 miles per hour entering the 10 freeway westbound. He then exited on Archibald Avenue. The suspect’s disregard for public safety caused deputies from continuing the pursuit.
Deputies received the report of that vehicle with a similar description as the suspect vehicle crashing at Amethyst Avenue and 6th Street. Four black men were seen fleeing the vehicle on foot. Deputies secured the perimeter and requested K9 Deja and Aviation to assist with the search for the suspects. Three of the four suspects were taken into custody and the stolen property was found inside the suspect vehicle. It was learned that three other Walmart’s were burglarized by the same suspects earlier the same day. The three suspects arrested, Elijah Mitchell, 18, Brandon Bishop, 19, and Elijah Stewart, 18, all of Moreno Valley were booked into the West Valley Detention Center and is being held in lieu of $25,000 bail. The fourth suspect remains outstanding.
