FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Two Alexandria men are facing felony charges in both Virginia and Maryland after police say them and two others stole a car at gunpoint and led officers on a chase across the D.C. area.
According to the Fairfax County Police Department, at around 5:20 p.m. on Sunday, April 16, a license plate reader registered a BMW that was reportedly stolen during a carjacking with several armed suspects.
Officers saw the car on the 7500 block of Richmond Highway in the Hybla Valley area of Fairfax and tried to stop the driver, who refused, hitting several police cruisers in an effort to get away.
The driver led police on a chase that eventually ended on the Beltway near Branch Avenue in Prince George’s County, Maryland, according to the Prince George’s County Police Department.
