Police Report: July 13-14

July 13th:

Nothing significant to report

July 14th (early morning) :

4300 block of Russell Avenue: At about 2:00 am power shift officers observed an unmarked gray Dodge tow truck towing a gray 1995 Chevy Tahoe and driving erratically. Officers attempted to stop the truck, but when the driver saw the officers he accelerated to a high rate of speed and fled into DC. The officers lost the truck just over the border DC but did see the driver of the truck stop momentarily next to a white Dodge Caravan that had chrome 22” wheels. Interestingly enough, the Chevy Tahoe being towed also had chrome 22” wheels leading the officers to believe that the Tahoe had been stolen in order to get the wheels. The officers notified MPD and their officers located the truck but were unable to stop it before it fled back into Maryland from the Montana Avenue area. A short time later the owner of the Tahoe called to report that his vehicle had in fact been stolen from in front of his residence in the 4300 block of Russell Avenue.

At about 7:45 am Prince George’s County police notified MRPD that they had recovered the Tahoe in the 2100 block of Beaver Road in Landover. The vehicle was intact except that all four of its 22” chrome wheels were missing.
