(Updated at 3:45 p.m.) Fairfax County police were pulled into a chase on I-495 during rush hour after a reported armed robbery in Tysons yesterday afternoon (Wednesday).
Two men and a woman allegedly stole several pairs of shoes from a person who had agreed to meet them to sell property in the 1900 block of Old Gallows Road around 5:30 p.m.
“One juvenile approached the victim, displayed a firearm, and took property,” the Fairfax County Police Department told FFXnow.
According to police, the trio drove away in a Mercedes E320 that was “quickly located driving south on I-495 at Little River Turnpike” in Annandale.
Police officers attempted to stop the vehicle, but the pursuit continued down through Springfield onto I-95. It concluded when the Mercedes hit a curb and was disabled near Alban Road in Newington.
“The three occupants of the vehicle were taken into custody. No injuries were reported,” the FCPD said.
An FCPD spokesperson later added that the stolen property and two firearms were recovered from the Mercedes.
A 20-year-old woman from Dumfries has been charged with two counts of robbery and disregarding a police signal to stop. Police have also obtained petitions for the other two individuals, who are aged 17 and 15.
