Police Arrest DC Teens With Stolen SUV After They Crash Near US Capitol

-

A group of United States Capitol Police (USCP) officers arrested two DC youths, aged 18 and 19, after they crashed a stolen vehicle into a barrier in the vicinity of the US Capitol on Tuesday.

Police also seized a semi-automatic 9mm “ghost gun” with a loaded high capacity magazine in the car.

The officers reportedly saw the stolen Ford Explorer, which had been involved in an armed carjacking that took place in the District, near Union Station at around 12:30 pm.

The SUV crashed into a construction barrier near Second Street, SE and East Capitol Street, following a police chase that spanned a few blocks, according to a statement from the USCP.

After the crash, the two suspects exited the car and ran away, but they were immediately caught. A “ghost gun” fell from the passenger door in the meantime.

No injuries were reported.

The suspects have been identified as 18-year-old Lamar Fenner and 19-year-old Isjalon Armstead. They are facing multiple charges including unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, receiving stolen property, carrying a pistol without license, and possession of an unregistered firearm.

The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) is currently investigating the incident.
