Baltimore County Police are investigating a crash that occurred Monday evening in North Baltimore on York Road at Belvedere Avenue directly in front of the Senator Theatre.
Sgt. Shane Moroz said police pursued the car after receiving a report of a suspicious vehicle near the Towson Town Center mall at about 10:30 p.m. He said the vehicle pursuit ended after a police helicopter had the car in sight. The car, a gray sedan, reached speeds of more than 80 miles per hour, Moroz said, before it crashed into a lamppost just across from the theater.
There were no reports of injuries. County police have one suspect in custody but said it is unclear if other people were in the car. Police found what appeared to be stolen merchandise in the trunk.
Moroz said it is unknown if the incident was related to the riots and looting in Baltimore.
