Four burglary suspects in a stolen Jaguar were arrested Thursday after a short pursuit through Fig Garden, the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office reported.
Sheriff’s spokesman Tony Botti said deputies spotted the suspects about 2 p.m. near Santa Fe and Safford avenues. The suspect fled in a red Jaguar and deputies pursued at speeds reaching more than 50 mph, Botti said. The Jaguar crashed into another car at Van Ness and Ashlan avenues.
The suspects tried to get away on foot but were apprehended a short time later.
Taken into custody were Jacob and Joshua Ryan, both 18, Trent Murphy, 21, and Disiree Jacinto Villalobos, 19.

Deputies learned the Jaguar was stolen earlier in the day while it was warming up at a home in Visalia.
The two adults and two children in the car involved in the collision were treated for minor injuries, Botti said.
The suspects face felony charges that include burglary, hit and run and resisting arrest. The Ryan twins were among five Fresno men arrested in July by the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office in an ongoing vehicle burglary investigation.
