ANTIOCH – Cameron Levonte Cartier Conley, a 27-year-old resident of Hercules, landed in jail on the Fourth of July. Conley is suspected of committing burglaries and robberies, which put him behind county bars.

Conley made a lasting impression with the Antioch Police Department. He purportedly led police on a 100-mile chase. He is also accused of ramming three police cars.

Conley remains in custody in lieu of $125,000 bond at the Martinez Detention Facility. He was booked after he received medical treatment for minor injuries.

An Antioch officer spotted Conley approaching Highway 4 in Antioch shortly after 3 p.m. Several officers pursued him westbound on Highway 4. The speed of this chase sometimes exceeded 100 mph.

As the suspect approached Bay Point, he exited from Highway 4 by Bailey Road. Officers followed him as he next drove onto Highway 4 in the eastbound direction.

The chase continued as the suspect exited from Highway 4 again, onto Hillcrest Avenue. He drove into a residential neighborhood where he allegedly rammed into three police cars.

The vehicle Conley was driving became disabled after the third police car ramming. Then Conley attempted to flee on foot.

Several officers including a K-9 police unit continued pursuing him. He was finally subdued after a struggle with officers.
Conley faces multiple charges involving second-degree burglary. This is in addition to assault with a deadly weapon, parole violation, and evading an officer disregarding safety.
