Two male suspects were arrested Wednesday following a car chase that led police from Parkville to Northwest Baltimore, police said
The short chase began with surveillance of a car at a Parkville hotel and ended with arrests near the intersection of Cold Spring Lane and Greenspring Avenue, police said.
Police set up surveillance at about 9 a.m. on what they said was a suspicious black Acura TL at the Comfort Inn at 8801 Loch Raven Blvd., said Baltimore County police spokeswoman Jennifer Peach. Police ran the vehicle's temporary paper tags, which came back reported as stolen — although the vehicle itself had not been stolen, she said.
"It's a common procedure for criminals that are trying to hide the car involved in criminal activity," Peach said.
At about 11 a.m., two males came out to the vehicle and began to drive away, Peach said. Nearby police attempted to stop the car before it left the parking lot.
