THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) - At least three burglars knocked in the door of a Ventura County produce market, fled with cash, and led police on a high speed vehicle chase that ended when their car smashed into a fence.
Their take: two rolls of nickels totaling $4.
The owner of Latino Market in Thousand Oaks tells the Ventura County Star the cost to fix the damaged door will be much greater than the hit to the cash register.
After the crash, police say three or four people ran from the car. About 25 deputies with helicopter support and a K-9 unit combed the area and went house to house during the search.
Police eventually arrested two suspects. A third man got away.
