Three Baltimore teens were arrested Friday afternoon after leading police on a high-speed chase on multiple highways through Baltimore and ending in Baltimore County.
Police said recovered three loaded handguns and a substance they suspected was marijuana after the chase involving two 15-year-old males and one 17-year-old male that began just after noon.
Baltimore police were alerted to the vehicle with the teens by a license plate reader that indicated the car was wanted in connection to an armed robbery. Police said when the teens saw them they attempted to flee.
Police said the driver was speeding recklessly and hit another vehicle before the pursuit ended on I-83 northbound near the Padonia Road ramp in the county.
Observers could see at least two male suspects were in handcuffs on the southbound lanes, while a blue Nissan Sentra was blocking traffic on the northbound lanes.
A Baltimore County police helicopter provided visual support. And a county police officer “was involved in a crash during this incident,” said department spokesperson Trae Corbin.
The officer has since been taken to hospital as a precautionary measure, he said.
