February 14, 2012- Dinuba car theft ended in a crash, Tuesday night, north of Orosi. The accident happened at about 11:00 PM.
Tulare County Sheriff’s deputies got a call from a resident who was following a vehicle with four passengers allegedly seen breaking into vehicles in Dinuba.
Deputies spotted the suspect vehicle, a 2005 Toyota SUV, moving toward Orosi in the area of Avenue 424 and Road 120.
The driver of the vehicle sped away on Road 128 and lost control of the vehicle when it approached Avenue 444, crashing into an embankment.
All four occupants got out of the vehicle in an attempt to flee, the Sheriff’s department said.
Officers from police departments in Dinuba, Reedley, Orange Cove and the Visalia California Highway Patrol office responded to the search. A helicopter was also called in.
Three teens were found and taken into custody, but a fourth suspect is still at large. The teenagers, a 14- and a 16-year-old from Orosi and a 17-year-old from Dinuba, were booked into the Juvenile Detention Facility.
