THE NATOMAS BUZZ | @natomasbuzz

The Sacramento Police Department today arrested three suspects for a burglarizing the Best Buy store in Natomas and stealing more than a dozen iPADs.

Early this morning, at about 1:10 a.m., officers responded to an alarm call at the Best Buy store on North Freeway Boulevard. Upon arrival, the officers observed two suspects carrying merchandise from the store and getting into a Jeep Cherokee driven by a third suspect.
Police attempted to stop the vehicle but when the supect driving did not yield, a pursuit onto westbound Interstate 80 ensued. During the pursuit, which reached speeds up to 80 mph, the suspects began throwing allegedly stolen iPADs out of the vehicle and onto the freeway near the Mace Boulevard exit in Davis, Calif.
The California Highway Patrol took over the pursuit and the Davis Police Department assisted by placing a spike strip on the freeway near Richards Boulevard. The suspects were successfully stopped and taken into custody without further incident.

Officers were able to collect iPADs from the freeway and believe between 10 to 20 were taken. A precise count was not possible immediately due to damage to the electronics.
Similar burglaries have occurred at Best Buy stores in neighboring cities and the San Francisco Bay Area in recent weeks. Sacramento police said it is unknown whether the suspects arrested today are connected to any of  those crimes.
The suspects arrested are only being identified as three black men in their 20s to 30s, from the Bay Area, two of whom are on parole. The suspects were arrested on suspicion of burglary, parole violation, and the driver for the pursuit.
