“On 12/2/2020 at approximately 7:30PM, deputies responded to a report of a string of vehicle burglaries in a local restaurant parking lot in Cupertino, California.
The caller said their car window was shattered and a bag was taken from the inside of the vehicle.
Deputies located a suspicious vehicle driving slowly through the parking lot. Deputies attempted to stop the driver, later identified as Jesus Becerra Hernandez (20), who led deputies in a 30-minute pursuit.
The pursuit started in Cupertino and continued into Fremont. Deputies attempted to immobilize the suspect vehicle by deploying spike strips near Mowry Avenue and the northbound Highway 880 on-ramp, but Becerra Hernandez managed to dodge the spike strips and continued onto northbound Highway 880.
The California Highway Patrol (CHP) continued the pursuit and ended up near Bancroft Avenue in Oakland, California. CHP Officers detained Becerra Hernandez and three additional suspects ran away from the vehicle and remain at large.
Deputies located stolen property inside of the suspect vehicle. The stolen property included hospital bags, tablets, cell phones and laptop computers. Deputies also determined the vehicle was stolen out of San Pablo. Becerra Hernandez was arrested and transported back to Santa Clara County, where he was booked into the Main Jail on the following charges: felony evading, vehicle theft, burglary, grand theft, receiving a stolen vehicle, conspiracy and possession of burglary tools.
We would like to thank the CHP for their assistance. Outstanding collective effort by everyone involved!
