On June 2 around 12:30 a.m., a large group of looters wreaked havoc at a shopping center at 678 N. Wilson way. Yberra’s Jewlers was the scene of the crime.
The criminals scurried away and fled when officers arrived. One vehicle, leaving at a high rate of speed, did not pull over at officer’s commands.
For 5 minutes and 8 miles a chase ensued. The driver exceeded 100 m.p.h. in the attempt to flee.
The suspect hit a post near the 99 off-ramp exit and stopped. Three suspects then fled from the vehicle. Two of them were caught.
23-year-old Wayne Brooks and 24-year-old Daniel Ruffin were arrested. The business suffered over $30,000 in damages.
