Napa theft leads to vehicle pursuit, three arrests, police say

Three people were arrested Sunday afternoon at the end of a vehicle pursuit that began with a theft at a Napa outlet store, authorities said.

At approximately 2:19 p.m. workers at the Kate Spade store at the Napa Premium Outlets on Freeway Drive reported the theft of more than $1,000 worth of merchandise, according to Napa Police Department Sgt. Brett Muratori. Witnesses saw the suspects exit the outlet mall in a white vehicle, and American Canyon police officers began the pursuit after seeing a vehicle matching the description, Muratori said in an email.

The pursuit ended near Highway 37 in Vallejo, where American Canyon Police arrested the driver and two passengers around 2:41 p.m., according to Muratori.

Police identified the driver as 19-year-old Donald Thomas of San Ramon and the passengers as 22-year-old Paul Ellis McGee of Antioch and 21-year-old Trejor A. Barber of Bay Point. The items reported stolen from the outlet store were found in her vehicle, Muratori said.
