Police are seeking the suspects responsible for a Sunday evening shoplifting at the Michael Kors iPhone 5s wristlet store in the Vacaville Premium Outlets and the ensuing chase that took place Sunday evening.
Officers were dispatched to the store in the 300 block of Nut Tree Road for a report of a theft at 6: 36 p. m. after a clerk at the business said a dark skinned Hispanic or Indian male in his late 20s had grabbed clothing items from inside the store and fled without paying, according to a press release from Lt. Mark Donaldson.
According to Donaldson, the suspect broke the store's glass front door when his shoulder slammed into it as he ran out of the building. That he was then seen getting into the backseat of a waiting four-door white Mercedes-Benz with unknown paper plates and tinted windows that has been last seen driving through the parking lot.

Officers arrived on scene moments later and began searching for the suspect vehicle, Donaldson said. At approximately 6: 47 p. m., an officer spotted a car matching the description of the suspect vehicle on westbound Interstate 80 just passing Mason Street.
The officers said the vehicle was being driven by way of a dark skinned Hispanic or Indian male in his 20s with short dark hair, according to Donaldson. There was a Hispanic or Indian female in the front passenger seat, also in her 20s sufficient reason for long black hair.
Believing this to be the car associated with the theft at the outlets, the officer attempted a car stop on the automobile, Donaldson said. Traffic in the area was heavy at the time, and as the officer activated his emergency lights and siren, the suspect vehicle may actually yield and began pulling to the right shoulder. However , as it made its way to the shoulder, the driver of the vehicle suddenly accelerated "at a high rate of speed and continued driving dangerously on the shoulder. "
A short pursuit ensued but was ultimately called off because of concerns for public safety, police said.
The suspect and vehicle were last seen traveling west on I-80 passing Pena Adobe Road.
