A 28-year-old man was arrested Tuesday evening after a chase that began in Concord and ended at a supermarket in Pleasant Hill, Concord police Lt. Jim Lardieri said. At about 5:20 p.m., a Concord police officer spotted a stolen car in the area of Adobe Drive and Grant Street. The driver initially looked like he was going to yield to the officer, but then sped off. The officer pursued him onto southbound state Highway 242, but then ended the pursuit as the driver exited at Gregory Lane in Pleasant Hill, Lardieri said. Moments later, the police dispatch center was notified that the car had been involved in a non-injury crash at the bottom of the off-ramp and that Pleasant Hill police were chasing the driver on foot, Lardieri said. The suspect ran into a Safeway supermarket on Contra Costa Boulevard, where he was taken into custody. He was identified as Christian Seymour, of Concord. Seymour was booked into county jail on suspicion of auto theft, receiving stolen property, evading a police officer, hit-and-run, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol and resisting arrest, Lardieri said.
