Attempted Thanksgiving Robbery Leads to Pursuit, Crash, Recovery of Firearm & Arrests
Three armed robbers are in jail after a brief pursuit by Emeryville Police on Thanksgiving according to a report provided by EPD Sergeant Pablo Rojas.
At approximately 11:30 p.m., Emeryville Police Officers responded to the area of 40th and Hollis on the report of an attempted armed robbery of an individual. The victim was able to provide officers with a description of the suspect and vehicle they were in.
