Six suspects are at large following a burglary at a marijuana business and a high-speed chase that left behind a trail of marijuana.
SONOMA COUNTY, CA — Six suspects are at large following a burglary at a marijuana business followed by a high-speed police chase along Highway 101 early Saturday, Santa Rosa police said.
Police responded at 3:36 a.m. Saturday to a burglar alarm activation at a marijuana business on the 900 block of Piner Place in Santa Rosa. Officers found a group, described as six black male adults in their mid twenties, stealing marijuana from the business, according to police.
The suspects ran to three waiting cars and fled the scene by driving over a sidewalk, colliding with a police car blocking the way, according to police. As they fled, the suspects left a trail of marijuana along the street, police said.
Police pursued at least one of the cars, eventually heading south along Highway 101 through Rohnert Park. The chase reached speeds as high as 100 miles per hour near Cotati, and police eventually ended the chase out of safety concerns.
All suspects are still at large, police said. They were last seen driving a white, newer model Infinity sedan and a darker, newer model Infinity sedan. Police believe they may have committed other marijuana burglaries around the Bay Area.
