OCEANSIDE, Calif. — An Oceanside grocery store parking lot drew a swarm of police to after reports of a stolen RV from Ocean Beach. Two people were booked into a Vista jail after allegedly stealing the RV.
Carlsbad police officers were able to to locate the RV and the two suspects in Oceanside.
According to Oceanside police, Carlsbad police received a report of a stolen RV and located it at an Albertson’s parking lot in the 3400 block of Marron Road, on the border of both cities.
“We did multiple PA announcements over a course of 45 minutes to an hour,” said Oceanside Police Department Sgt. Jeff Brandt.
Oceanside Police, Carlsbad Police and the San Diego Sheriff’s Department swarmed the RV.
“Motorhomes are a little bit higher than we are, they have a little bit of elevation. We work behind whatever cover we have shields and BearCat,” said Brandt.
Police say the suspects refused to come out so they released the K9’s. A male and an emotional female surrendered.
Officers say the female was bit by the dog on the shoulder and treated for the dog bite.
Police say the RV was reported stolen from Ocean Beach December 16th. Officers did not find drugs or weapons but the RV still needs to be towed and thoroughly searched and returned to the owner.
The suspects will be booked in the Vista jail facing charges including auto theft.
