“It was one loud bang and then you just hear the sirens right after,” said Daphne Maradigue.

Police say 18-year-old Lavonn Dill stole the equipment from the Natomas Bel Air on W. El Camino Avenue and crashed into several parked cars while attempting to flee.

At around 11:50 p.m., the white street sweeper was seen quickly pulling out from the parking lot with the headlights off. Officers say they saw the truck run a red light before heading off on Truxel Road.

Officers attempted to pull the truck over when the driver apparently lost control and hit three parked cars on Truxel Road.

The suspect then abandoned the vehicle, and fled on foot.

“He was behind everyone’s backyard, jumping fences,” Maradigue.

Authorities say a police helicopter found Dill hiding in a garbage container in a resident’s backyard.

“I nudged my husband and said someone is in our backyard, and that time they were saying get out of the trash can,” said Alice Kiley. “My husband sees the cops already have him handcuffed and pulled out of the trash can.”

Kiley is happy police found Dill so quickly, because she wonders how long he would have hid in her garbage can. She says she can’t believe someone would be dumb enough to steal a street sweeper.

“You can’t go very fast for one thing and you’re going to be very noticeable,” said Kiley.

Dill is facing felony charges of motor vehicle theft, receiving stolen property, and misdemeanor charges of resisting a police officer, hit-and-run property damage, and driving without a license.
