Three arrested after Petaluma school lockdown in hunt for suspected thieves

A high-speed police pursuit that put a Petaluma elementary school on lockdown Friday afternoon resulted in the arrest of three suspects wanted in connection with a reported theft at a Windsor AT&T store.

The men were arrested within 20 minutes after a vehicle chase on Highway 101 that began about 1:35 p.m. and reached speeds of 100 mph, ending when the suspects bailed out of their vehicle near Petaluma's East Washington and Ellis streets, the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office reported.

Arrested moments later on suspicion of burglary, vehicular evading and resisting arrest were Jack Fuller, 28; Rashaw Bailey, 31; and Leon Gray, 31, all from Oakland.

Bailey also was arrested on drug charges stemming from an existing Alameda County warrant.

Nearby McKinley Elementary School was locked down from approximately 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. while authorities searched for a possible fourth suspect.
