LATHROP, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say two men are in custody after leading police and the California Highway Patrol on a pursuit that began in the San Francisco Bay area and ended about 60 miles later in San Joaquin County.
The pursuit started around 7:45 p.m. Wednesday after officers spotted a vehicle in Newark registered to one of two men who are suspected of slayings in East Palo Alto and Grand Junction, Colo.
Police have identified those suspects as Jaime Cardenas and Fidel Silva.
The California Highway Patrol joined the pursuit as it continued northbound on Interstate 880. CHP Officer Sam Morgan tells KCBS officers in Lathrop stopped the men on Interstate 5 around 9 p.m. using a spike strip that popped one of the vehicle’s tires.
East Palo Alto police say the men in the vehicle were not Cardenas and Silva.
