Vacaville police arrested two Pleasanton residents after they
stole a car during a test-drive Friday evening.
The suspects, Shane Woodcock and Shawna McLemore, went to a Vacaville dealership under the auspice of buying a car. While on a test drive they took the salesman to a Wells Fargo Bank on Harbison Drive, according to police.
All three parties went inside the bank, but after Woodcock and McLemore slipped away, the salesman realized something was wrong and went outside to find the two in the car. Woodcock reportedly said he had a gun and drove away at a high rate of speed, according to police.
The vehicle was spotted on westbound Interstate Highway 80. The suspects reportedly drove into oncoming traffic, then into a residential area where they fled on foot, police said.
McLemore, 33, was located hiding in a shed and taken into custody with the assistance of a police dog. She was treated at a hospital in
Vacaville, according to police.
Woodcock, 37, was arrested shortly thereafter. Officers found a knife and a replica handgun at the scene, according to police.
