Three men were arrested last night after Arlington County Police spotted a stolen car in the Pentagon City area.
An officer located the vehicle, which had been stolen in a “strong arm carjacking” in Maryland, on 12th Street S., near Penatgon City mall. A few minutes earlier, around 7:30 p.m., a police license reader had spotted the car on nearby Route 1.
The three men inside the car tried to flee when police approached, according to ACPD spokesman Dustin Sternbeck. All three were captured, but an officer used a Taser to subdue one suspect when he tried to resist arrest, Sternbeck said.
Per department policy, the man who was tased was brought to Virginia Hospital Center for evaluation.
In addition to facing possible charges in Arlington, the men were wanted for “a number of charges” in Maryland, said Sternbeck.
