Stolen Audi SUV Recovered Following Pursuit in DC
3 suspects fled; no arrests
Overnight Sunday, 4/8/18-Monday, 4/9/18, a brand new 2018 Audi Q7 was stolen from the owner’s driveway on Primrose Street between Brookville Road and Oxford Street. The key had been left inside the vehicle.
At about 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, 4/15/18, DC Police (MPD) spotted the stolen Audi still displaying the owner’s license plates. The car, occupied by three males, fled when police tried to stop it. The suspects abandoned the car in the 400 block of O Street Southwest (not far from the Southwest Waterfront and Nationals Park) and ran. They were able to make their getaway before pursuing MPD officers caught up to the car. MPD towed the car to a storage lot and notified Village Police. The SUV had been involved in a collision and had sustained significant damage.
Village Police have been working closely with the Montgomery County Police Auto Theft Unit (ATU). Detective Tod Muollo of the ATU responded to the storage lot where the car was taken. Det. Muollo processed the car for forensic evidence, and he has submitted several items to the lab for analysis. Currently, the owner has reclaimed the SUV and it is now in the shop for repairs.
The Village Police Department appreciates its partnership with the County Police and with the work of Det. Muollo in particular.
The investigation is continuing.
