A description of the suspects’ vehicle was broadcast to police officers in that area. Plainclothes officers found and followed the suspects’ vehicle, and spike strips disabled it at Lombard and Taylor streets.

Officers detained the suspects and searched the vehicle, which apparently also contained passports, bank cards, jewelry, gift cards and medication. Police said the also found four guns when the arrested the suspects.

The vehicle was apparently reported stolen out of Stockton.
