Police Lt. Herb Walters said police rushed to the store when Target security cameras showed three unidentified subjects using crowbars to gain entry through the store’s loading dock area. The suspects were seen taking high-end electronics from the area of the store where cameras, iPads, and laptops are sold. When Dublin police arrived, they spotted a Ford SUV leaving the rear of Target at a high rate of speed. Police attempted to stop the vehicle as it drove onto I-580 and gave chase. While pursuing the vehicle towards Castro Valley, police saw the suspects throwing the stolen merchandise out of the windows. The pursuit continued into Castro Valley, where units lost the suspect vehicle. Target is estimating its loss at about $15,000 worth of electronics. Police are asking that anyone with information to contact Dublin police detectives Jared Hattaway at (925) 556-4561 or Detective Sergeant Yesenia Sanchez at (925) 833-6682.

I thought it was supposed to be difficult to outrun a police radio. Apparently, not!

@Nathan, that robbery at Target you linked to was from 2012 and Dublin Police confirmed this morning that the pursuit in this article was not their incident.

oops. The day (date) is off by a day also. Sorry about that. Coincidental how similar the locations and dates are though. Maybe we can look into next week from last year to see what to look out for ...

That's correct - these incidents are not related. The car used yesterday was an Audi, as it turned right in front of me from Center headed east on Edwards Lane.at a high rate of speed. They abandoned the car right down the street and ran away.
