The Oakley Police Department arrested a 15-year-old male after a pursuit in a stolen vehicle which ended at Park Middle School in the City of Antioch.

According to Oakley Police, at 1:05 PM Officer B. Jackson located a stolen silver 2021 Kia Rio at Main Street near I-160. Officer B. Jackson maneuvered to get into a position to attempt to stop the vehicle and instead of yielding to Officer B. Jackson the driver, and sole occupant, lead him on a pursuit.

The driver ultimately lead Officer B. Jackson to the intersection of Robert Way and Elizabeth Street in the City of Antioch which is adjacent to Park Middle School. The driver got out of the vehicle and fled towards the school.

Other Oakley and Antioch Police Officers began arriving at the scene and a perimeter was set around the general area and on the school grounds itself. A school staff member called to report a non-student juvenile being in the main office saying he was there to speak with some students of the school.

Police said the school staff coordinated with police officers and the non-student juvenile was positively identified as the driver of the stolen vehicle and taken into custody.

The suspect in this case is a 15-year-old male who is on probation and wears an ankle monitor due to his probation status. Oakley Police arrested the 15-year-old male for being in possession of a stolen vehicle and for evading traffic officers. The 15-year-old male will be booked into Juvenile Hall.

“I am grateful no harm came to any of the students of Park Middle School during this incident and I am glad to see our East County police departments working so well together when things like this happen. I applaud all officers and school staff members who were involved in this incident and brought it to a successful conclusion,” said Chief Beard.

The Antioch Unified School District released the following information:

Today at approximately 1:15pm site administration was contacted by Oakley Police Department regarding the pursuit of a stolen vehicle in the neighborhood. We immediately secured the campus and noticed a juvenile attempting to trespass over the fence. Administration detained the juvenile and was able to contact the police who took him into custody immediately. The lockdown has been lifted and all students are safe. We would like to thank Antioch and Oakley Police for their swift response, and we are proud of our school staff for ensuring the safety of our students. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to administration. Thank you for your understanding.

The name of the suspect was not released because he is a juvenile.

Another example, no doubt, of excellent parenting. Hats off to the police for their work. The unfortunate side of this story is our very poor criminal justice system which lets chronic offenders back onto the streets. Such offenders – even juvenile ones – need to spend time in a cell for the safety of the community.

I’m taking this moment to be grateful this isn’t my child.

In hope his probation is revoked and a sentence jail imposed. If this juvenile has so little regard for the law and the rights of the general public, it can only get worse from here if the justice system continues to give him a slap on the wrist. Hopefully giving him some real world consequences for his actions will hold him accountable and discourage similar behavior.
