Following the robbery on Forest Avenue, the juveniles used a set of keys taken during the robbery to steal the victim’s unoccupied black 2016 Hyundai Tucson. The vehicle was later recovered.

Deputies later spotted the suspect vehicle near Omega Avenue and attempted an enforcement stop. The juvenile driver took off at a high rate of speed and eventually crashed into barriers in the roadway on Redwood Road. Three juveniles, personal effects from the robberies, and a P-80 lower receiver ghost gun (with a laser) were in the vehicle. Two additional juveniles who matched the descriptions provided by the victims were located on foot near the Castro Valley BART station. The suspects, who were all identified by the victims, ranged in age from 13-17 years of age. All the juveniles had prior robbery history in Oakland, Berkeley, and Pleasanton. They were arrested on various felonies and transported to the Juvenile Justice Center.”
