The grab-and-run theft was noticed by patrolling officers of the Concord department's special enforcement team.
The suspects fled when officers approached, taking off in a getaway car with officers in pursuit and calling for backup.
"One of our sergeants was able to position himself well ahead of the pursuit on (state) Highway 4 and was anxiously awaiting as the suspects approached the Willow Pass Road exit," the department said in its post.
Spike strips were placed that disabled three of the car's tires and brought the pursuit to a halt in Pittsburg, where the woman driving pulled over.
2 of 2: Spike strips were used, bringing this chase to an end. Make no mistake, we don’t like having to chase people, but if you come into our city and attempt to victimize any of our citizen’s and/or businesses, we will come after you. -392/586 https://t.co/787qWgVstj pic.twitter.com/QL5TEhYiRy— Concord Police Dept.
