Caught On Tape: Police Apprehend Suspects Accused Of Stealing Car

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A suspected stolen car flew through the streets of Baltimore, weaving in and out of traffic as the driver and passenger tried to get away from police.  The whole thing unfolded live on WJZ Tuesday.

Andrea Fujii explains it all started hours earlier.

A stolen car created a dangerous mess around the city as the driver tried to elude police during rush hour.  Sky Eye Chopper 13 followed the silver car, and so did the Baltimore City police helicopter.

“What he’s trying to do is outrun the police helicopter, which so far is not working out very well,” said Captain Mike Perry, WJZ’s chopper pilot.  “He’s now going on Gwynns Falls and he’s going the wrong way!”

There were close calls with other vehicles.  Police say the driver hit many cars during a chase from Baltimore City to the county and back to western Baltimore.

A state health department employee who works near Reisterstown Plaza was carjacked Tuesday morning.  Police say it was her stolen car that was later spotted in Baltimore County. 

It ended on North Avenue after the car zoomed past three cop cruisers and nearly hit two people.  Eventually, one person ran away from the car while it continued to roll, slamming into a police car.  Officers ran after one suspect and a few minutes later, a second suspect was in custody.

It was the police helicopter that spotted the stolen car in Baltimore County and it never lost track of the silver car so that cruisers on the ground could round-up the suspects.  No one was injured.

The driver has been identified as Frank Richardson.  Richardson and the passenger have refused to speak to detectives.

      That’s because Bad Guys do Bad Things!! All I see Baltimore City Cops doing is driving around, they can’t catch anybody, they are only sympathetic to caucasians, they know who the drug dealers are and they just drive by the hot spots.. So Bonnie, i’m thinking that you must live in The County, “YOU HAVE NO IDEA”!!!!!!!!!

      1. urnotfunny says:

        Get Rich – maybe that’s because the caucasians commit less crime. Did you see the suspects jump out of the car? Oh my — they’re BLACK! The cops do a good job everyday putting up with all the ghetto trash, if you think you can do a better job — go for it! You must watch the police since you know that they know who the drug dealers are.

      2. PD says:

        They drive by the hot spots because every drug case they take to court gets thrown out. The officers get tired of spending their days off in court watching the drug dealers walk out with no penalty. Who feels like locking somebody up when you know they’re just going to get out the next day and be right back on that same corner?

    Bonnie,
    I’m a Baltimore Cop. Thanks. I wasn’t involved in this incident, but this ikind of stuff happens EVERY day in Baltimore, and our cops deal with it…JUST LIKE THIS. Unless you live in the areas affected by crime, you just don’t get it. So, I thank you on behalf of all the other cops out there doing a good job.

    1. Wen Han says:

      Bless you and be safe!

    DKM

    A certain percentage of low-lifes are committing crimes in the city making it hard for the rest of hard working citizens from living a good quality of life.Leave the hard core thugs in jail to rot.

    Get Rich or Die Tryin, If you think you can do the job better, then why don’t you become a cop. I can tell by your comments that no matter what good the police do, your still going to bash them for something.

    Stupid ass people.

    Once Florida passed the “Shoot the car jacker law” which essentially is a “Castle Doctrin” that carried out of Floridians’ homes and into their cars, car jackings dropped 75%! That’s because in Florida a car jacker now knows that he can be legally shot and killed trying to take over a person’s car. We need that here to keep the gansta’ N—— in check! I’ d love to shoot one of them trying to take over my car!

    2. DB says:

      Great idea if you lived in a State that issued gun permits. But this is the People’s Republic of Maryland, no gun permits unless you are a sport star or millionaire, only taxes, taxes and more taxes. Ain’t life on the plantation grand?

    3. Antoinette Esposito says:

  9. LJH says:

    The carjacking happened Tuesday afternoon, not Tuesday morning.
