Updated: Police Apprehend Suspects Who Fled Stolen Car on Duke Street

Updated 2:50 p.m. — Police said the suspects have been apprehended. An earlier version of this article listed an incorrect address.

For those curious about a police helicopter is sweeping over the 2300 block of Duke Street around 1:30 p.m., police say the helicopter is assisting in the search for suspects who fled a vehicle that was flagged as stolen.

Lt. Courtney Ballantine, a spokesperson for the Alexandria Police Department, said the nature of the area meant a helicopter was called in to assist with the search.

Ballantine said that no suspect descriptions are available and there is no reason to believe the suspects are armed and dangerous.
