UPDATE

On September 25, 2019 at 9:03 Pleasanton Police officers located a stolen vehicle driving westbound on Stoneridge Dr. at Denker Dr. The vehicle was a white BMW X5 reported stolen out of the Santa Cruz area. Officers initiated a traffic stop and the vehicle increased speed in an attempt to evade the officers. The vehicle then drove the wrong way on the I-680 northbound offramp continuing onto the freeway. Officers terminated the pursuit as the vehicle drove dangerously southbound on the northbound direction of I-680.

Officers were still able to see the BMW as it pulled to the shoulder just south of the W. Las Positas overcrossing. They witnessed the suspect exit the vehicle and head eastbound towards South San Ramon Creek hopping over the guardrail. Officers lost sight of the suspect as he went down the embankment into the creek. The suspect is described as a white male adult, late 20's, with a shaved head and wearing a white tee shirt carrying a large backpack. Further investigation, utilizing evidence recovered from the vehicle, has identified the suspect as Jeremy Castleberry, born 11/06/1990. He has been known to frequent the Santa Cruz area.

Officers set up a perimeter around the area and requested the assistance of CHP and Alameda County Sheriffs department. A search of the area was conducted with the assistance of a CHP helicopter and the Alameda County Sheriff’s department drone unit as well as K9 teams from both Pleasanton PD and Alameda County Sheriff’s department. After an extensive 2-hour search Castleberry was not located and the perimeter was cleared.

Jeremy Castleberry currently has several felony warrants for his arrest from Alameda County for identity theft, burglary, and forgery. Castleberry may still be in the area and we are requesting anyone with information on his whereabouts or see someone matching his description is encouraged to contact the Pleasanton Police Department at (925) 931-5100.
