San Diego, CA (fox5sandiego.com) Police say back on April 22, Samuel Biru went into a San Diego liquor store, showed a gun which turned out to be a pellet gun, and then made out with 3,000-dollars. Three days later he robbed a 7-eleven in National City where he got away with cash and 29 lottery tickets.
Prosecutors say a couple of hours after that second robbery, Biru went to another liquor store to pawn the lottery tickets which had been flagged as stolen. The clerk at that store got a license plate number, and later that day, National City Police tried to make a traffic stop on the suspect.
“An officer on scene deployed PepperBalls, non-lethal PepperBalls, into the vehicle, in an attempt to gain compliance. There was no compliance. The driver’s side window was rolled up, and the vehicle pulled away from the curb.”
That lead to a chase that reached 90-miles per hour through city streets, on to highways, and winding roads to Ramona. After hitting a spike strip, Biru, dressed in a suit, was hit again with PepperBalls as police took him into custody.
