Two people have been taken into custody in Sacramento County’s Vintage Park area following a vehicle chase that began shortly after 6 p.m. in Elk Gove.

Officer Christopher Trim, Elk Grove police spokesman, said officers responded at 6:07 p.m. to a report of a vehicle burglary in progress on Laguna Boulevard near the Target store. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle, but it fled.

When the vehicle entered Highway 99, the CHP took over the chase. The vehicle traveled south at high speeds past Galt to Lodi. It exited the freeway in Galt then returned to the freeway, heading northbound.

It exited at Calvine Road, then drove at high speeds through neighborhoods in the Vintage Park area, north of Calvine. The two occupants abandoned the vehicle on Cord Way, a residential street, and ran off in different directions.

Police arrested Lashoun Schexnayder, 38, of Sacramento and Edward Stephens, 28, of Richmond.

Officer Michael Bradley, CHP spokesman, said one suspect was apprehended by CHP officers at Willow Grove Way and Squirewood Court.
