DAVIS (CBS13) — A 17-year-old is in police custody in connection with two armed robberies and a carjacking in Davis.
The crimes happened on Halloween night along Shasta Drive and the area of 7th and D Streets. Police say the suspects drove away in the carjacking victim’s vehicle.
The stolen vehicle was recovered Saturday by Woodland police officers after a brief pursuit. Over a two-day period, Davis officers worked with the Woodland police department to arrest the 17-year-old Woodland resident for evading police and weapons charges.
Police say they are searching for one, possibly two, more suspects in this case.
Deputy Chief Paul Doroshov said it’s a sign of the times.
“Davis is growing. Crime is up, not significantly, but to some extent throughout the community. We are located on I-80 and it’s just easy access to a lot of areas,” Doroshov said.
Anyone with information about these incidents is encouraged to call the Davis Police Department at 530-747-5400.
