(KRON) — A smash-and-grab robbery suspect was taken into custody Friday morning after leading police in a pursuit that ended when his vehicle crashed into a pole in Vallejo. Just before 6:30 a.m., officers with the American Canyon Police Department were dispatched to a Walmart for a man who had used a hammer to break the glass jewelry case and stole several items from within, according to a social media post from American Canyon PD.
Before officers could conduct a traffic stop, the suspect took off at a high rate of speed and led officers on a pursuit into Vallejo. According to the tweet, the suspect, identified as Desjuan Lateri Sr., 34 of Martinez, lost control of his vehicle and careened into a pole.
“The suspect took a turn just a little too fast and too furious and the vehicle Tokyo drifted into a pole,” read the post.
