VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WVEC) -- Dispatchers tell us a police dog bit one of three car larceny suspects accused of breaking into cars overnight and leading officers on a chase in Virginia Beach.
Authorities received calls around 2 a.m. Tuesday about a suspicious vehicle driving slowly through the Thourogood neighborhood as well as the Bayville Park area.
Shortly after that call, dispatchers received a second call about a homeowner observing several suspects entering his vehicle parked in his driveway.
Officers canvassed the scene and as soon as they located the suspects' vehicle, a silver SUV, the suspects jumped back into the vehicle and took off, crashing into a police car.
The suspects then sped away from the crash and led police on a pursuit starting at Lookout Rd. in the Chic's Beach section of the city, but officers were able to set up road spikes at Indian Hill Rd. and stopped the car.
The suspects fled the vehicle on foot, but three of them were caught, one of who was bitten by a police K-9 and suffered minor injuries.
Police say the suspect vehicle appears to be stolen from Chesapeake, while several firearms were recovered from the vehicle.
All three suspects were confirmed to be juveniles between the ages of 13 and 17 and were taken to the Virginia Beach Police Detective Bureau.
They have each been charged with auto theft, grand larceny and juvenile in possession of a firearm. No officers were injured in this incident.
