Oakland Police Department (OPD) apprehended two suspects trying to flee from a sideshow in Oakland. The BMW came across High Street bridge on the wrong side of the street at high speed, blew a tire at High and Fernside Boulevard and came to rest near Bayo Vista and Gibbons Drive. An OPD helicopter and many officers followed. Alameda Police Department provided assistance. Officers caught the pair after they abandoned the vehicle. OPD searched the neighborhood for evidence after the arrests.
‘This is a marathon, not a sprint,’ says Mayor Ashcraft
Two and a half weeks ago, Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered all Californians to stay home, except to work in “essential businesses” or perform “essential services.” I’m proud of Alameda’s effort to comply with these restrictions on our movement, to help slow the spread of COVID-19, especially among our most vulnerable community members and avoid an influx of COVID-19 patients at our hospitals.
