From Police Chief Cathy Lanier:
Last night, as a result of our robbery suppression efforts, MPD members spotted a vehicle that we were looking for in reference to several robberies. The vehicle was occupied by five individuals and fled upon contact. We were able to stop and apprehend all five of the individuals in Prince George’s County after a lengthy vehicle and foot pursuit. Recovered from the car was a handgun. The subjects are facing charges in Prince Georges County and in Washington D.C. upon their extradition. We believe these subjects to be responsible for multiple robberies in the city to include several in the First District area.
I want to recognize our members in patrol, and our canine and helicopter units, who were able to place these subjects under arrests without injury to any resident or visitor. I also want to thank the Prince George’s County Police Department.”
