Elk Grove Police Apprehend Suspected Burglars After Vehicle, Helicopter Pursuit

Two suspected residential burglars who attempted to steal a safe were apprehended after a vehicle and helicopter pursuit late last night in Elk Grove.  

Officers were dispatched to the 8900 block of North Camden after receiving a call where the witness had seen the front door to a residence open with several individuals loitering around.  When officers arrived, they observed an unknown person pushing a large safe on a dolly to an awaiting Ford truck that was occupied by 38-year old Demon L. Brice (above right) and 40-year old Jamal Brice (above left), both of Stockton. 

When officers arrived, the person pushing the dolly fled on foot while the Brices fled in a vehicle. Officers attempted to conduct an enforcement stop believing that a residential burglary had just taken pace.

The driver did not yield and led officers on a 2.8-mile pursuit that traveled through the Camden neighborhood that ended when Demon Brice, who was driving, jumped out of the vehicle while it was still moving. Jamal Brice remained in the vehicle as it rolled over a curb and struck a tree and was immediately detained without incident. 

Officers pursued Brice Demon on foot and established a perimeter around the area. With the assistance of an EGPD K-9 and helicopter, he was located and taken into custody without incident. 

Officers later confirmed that the residence on North Camden Dr. had been burglarized and arrested the Brices. The third person was not located. 

The suspects are being held on $50,000 bail and will be arraigned on Wednesday afternoon.
