Attempted Richmond Police Car Stop, Crash Leads To Weapons Arrests

RICHMOND (CBS SF) -- A car that crashed while attempting to evade Richmond police has led to the arrest of three suspects for firearms, warrants and parole violations.

A Richmond officer spotted stolen license plates on the car, but the driver fled an attempted stop and crashed into another vehicle at the intersection of Marina Way and Barrett Avenue on Friday.

The three people in the car then fled onto the Union Pacific train tracks, but were all located during a search by officers.

Officers found five loaded firearms - two rifles and two pistols -- in the car, police said, noting that the rifles were an AK-47 and AR-15 with high-capacity magazines.

"All three suspects were either on parole or had outstanding warrants for their arrests," police said.
