Police: Stopped Stolen Vehicle Near T.C. Williams Leads to Pursuit

Police say the stop of a stolen vehicle led to a short pursuit on foot and three arrests.

Around 9 p.m. yesterday (Sunday), police stopped a vehicle on the 3000 block of King Street — a bit down the road from T.C. williams High School — according to Lt. Courtney Ballantine, a spokesman for the Alexandria Police Department.

Ballantine said the vehicle had been reported stolen in Fairfax County. After it was stopped, three suspects allegedly fled the vehicle. After a short foot pursuit, Ballantine said the three were apprehended.

A helicopter was called in to assist with the search, Ballantine said, but was ultimately sent back because the suspects were caught before it was needed.
