SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — The Sacramento Police Department has a perimeter set up in South Sacramento, searching for people they say are possibly connected to a burglary. 

Police told FOX40 the burglary happened at a marijuana dispensary just before 2 a.m., near Pinell Street and Rene Avenue, in East Del Paso Heights. 

When officers responded, the people involved left the scene, leading officers on a vehicle chase to a South Sacramento neighborhood near Atlas and 24th avenues.

Officials said multiple people abandoned the vehicle and ran away.
