Camarillo patrol deputies were dispatched to a reported theft in progress in the area of Golden Pond Drive and Picket Avenue, Camarillo.  Witnesses watched as three male suspects entered unlocked vehicles, removed property and placed the property inside a vehicle the suspects  had stolen from a nearby residence.  Deputies arrived on scene just as the suspects were fleeing the area in the stolen vehicle.  Deputies attempted to initiate a traffic stop, but were led on a short pursuit through local residential streets.  In an attempt to elude pursuing deputies, the driver of the stolen vehicle left the roadway and drove through a local park and eventually through a metal gate that guarded the entrance to a vehicle storage yard.  While in the storage yard, the driver of the stolen vehicle collided with a tree, which disabled the vehicle.  Two of the male suspects fled over a brick wall into a wash area while the third suspect was unable to extricate himself from the damaged vehicle.  The suspect in the vehicle was taken into custody immediately and a short time later a second suspect was located in the wash.  The second suspect sustained moderate injuries from the collision and was admitted to a local hospital.  Stolen property from several victims was found inside the stolen vehicle.  Also recovered was a handgun which had been possessed by one of the suspects and discarded in the wash. None of the deputies involved in the pursuit were injured.  The investigation continues.  If you witnessed something or are the victim of a crime related to this incident, please call Detective Norris.
