THORN­TON — Two male sus­pects who re­port­edly robbed a Chevron sta­tion in Thorn­ton on Thurs­day night were later ar­rested in Modesto, ac­cord­ing to a San Joaquin County Sher­iff’s Face­book post.

At ap­prox­i­mately 10:35 p.m., the sher­iff’s de­part­ment re­ceived re­ports that two males wear­ing masks had robbed the gas sta­tion at gun point and fled the scene in an older white Honda, ac­cord­ing to the post. Deputies spot­ted a ve­hi­cle match­ing the de­scrip­tion driv­ing at a high rate of speed head­ing south­bound on In­ter­state 5 at Ham­mer Lane in Stockton. When deputies pur­sued the ve­hi­cle, the sus­pects re­port­edly be­gan throw­ing money, cloth­ing and other items from the car.

The ju­ve­niles, whose names were not re­leased due to their age, were fi­nally pulled over in Modesto at the Pe­landale exit. Video sur­veil­lance helped iden­tify the pas­sen­gers as the sus­pects in the rob­bery, ac­cord­ing to the post, and the two were ar­rested and booked into ju­ve­nile hall.
