Vallejo police on Monday identified the two suspects arrested after a high-speed pursuit last week that ended in Pleasant Hill.
The suspects were Curtis Sanders, 33, of Fairfield and Fredrick Edward, 41, a transient. Sanders was the driver who led police on the pursuit.
The chase began at 7:45 p.m. at Lincoln Road East and Magazine Street in South Vallejo when officers tried to pull over a truck containing two men who detectives identified as part of an investigation, police said.
Speeds in excess of 100 mph were reached during the pursuit.
Vallejo Police Lt. Joel Salinas said a local law enforcement task force had asked officers to track down and detain the suspects, an action which apparently triggered the chase.
The chase ended about 8:20 p.m. when the suspects crashed into protective poles at a dead end near Pleasant Hill's Fair Oaks Elementary School .
Sanders fled and made a gesture that caused police to think he had a gun, so an officer fired one shot that did not hit Sanders, police said.
Sanders then reportedly immediately put his hands up and got on the ground, police added. Police took him and Edwards into custody.
Police recovered crystal methamphetamine, which had been allegedly thrown out by the suspects, along surface streets in Concord. No weapon was recovered.
Edward was also found to be a parolee at large, police added.
