PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. (May 9, 2016)—Today there was yet another vehicle pursuit in Calvert County. This time a 14- and a 15-year-old fled from a traffic stop. The car turned out to be a stolen rental out of Anne Arundel County. The 14-year-old passenger was charged and released to his step-mother. The 15-year-old driver remains at large. Names of the suspects have not been released due to their age.
The incident occurred early this morning at 12:14 a.m. Calvert County Sheriff's Office Dep. Williamson attempted to make a traffic stop on a 2003 Volvo in the area of northbound Rt. 4 and Chaneyville Rd for speeding. The vehicle failed to stop and a pursuit was initiated heading into the Dunkirk area.
Crime Suppression Team units were occupying the intersection of Rt. 4 and Ward Rd which forced the Volvo to make a U-turn and head southbound on Rt. 4. Dep. Williamson and Sgt. Hollinger pursued the vehicle as it fled onto Mt. Harmony Rd. The vehicle went off road and traveled across a field on the north side of Mt. Harmony Road across from the ball fields of Mt Harmony Elementary School. When the vehicle could not go any further, the two occupants bailed out and fled on foot into a nearby wooded area. The vehicle continued traveling unoccupied until it came to rest in a wooded area.
A perimeter was established, Trooper 2 responded, and DFC Burggraff and his K-9 partner began a track which met with negative results.
A registration check revealed that the Volvo was a stolen rental car out of Anne Arundel County. The vehicle had been reported stolen on April 29, 2016.
At approximately 1:21 a.m., Dep. Trigg observed a white male walking on the shoulder of Mt. Harmony Rd. The 14-year-old juvenile male subject admitted to being the passenger of the stolen Volvo and identified the alleged 15-year-old juvenile driver.
DFC Hawkins responded to the sheriff's office to interview the juvenile passenger. The juvenile was charged on a Youth Report and released into the care of his step-mother. Investigation continues into the identity and whereabouts of the other juvenile.
