While officers searched the area, one of the suspects made his way back to the gas station and drove off in a marked police SUV, the spokesman said.

The suspect got onto the Bishop Ford Freeway and exited near 99th and Green Streets, where he dumped the SUV and ran off, the spokesman said. Officers used the vehicle’s GPS tracker to recover the SUV, which was not damaged.

No arrests have been reported.
