According to the a motorist pulled in and parked a vehicle at 11:10 p.m. at the In-N-Out locale, and entered the restaurant.

Three males, the witness told officers, broke into a parked vehicle and then fled in a late-model, black BMW, according to police.

A nearby patrol unit saw a trio and vehicle matching the witness' description driving onto I-580. The officer followed the car and, within minutes, pulled over, questioned and apprehended the three at the Dougherty Road exit in Dublin, records state.
