Shortly after 9 am Tuesday morning, officers received word of an armed robbery in Sacramento. A description of the vehicle and their direction of travel was provided. An Elk Grove Police K9 officer located a vehicle and suspects matching the description on south bound Highway 99 at Pringle Avenue. The vehicle was being driven by 25 year old Courtney Beach of Lodi. Beach tried to evade the officer going through the City of Galt. The vehicle eventually crashed into a ditch and both suspects fled on foot. 25 year old Kamron Thomas, also of Lodi, was taken into custody with the help of the EGPD K9. Beach was located and arrested by Galt police officers. Both suspects were taken to county jail.
According to Elk Grove police, the two will also be charged with the attempted robbery of SnoBites and Chevron on Monday night. A white male suspect, believed to be Thomas, walked into both businesses and demanded money from employees. In both situations, the employees did not give any money to the suspect and he eventually fled. Booking photos of Thomas and Beach are not yet being released due to the ongoing nature of the investigation.
