From email, in Warrington, Virginia, on Saturday morning, a Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office deputy attempted to stop two speeding vehicles southbound on Lee Highway around 3:30am.

Both vehicles failed to stop. After a brief pursuit, one of the cars crashed through a fence and the other car stopped at the end of a cul-de-sac.

Five occupants jumped from the vehicles and fled on foot.

Three of the 16yr old occupants were found and arrested.

After interviewing the suspects, detectives found out that the 16 year olds stole two other vehicles earlier that evening, and they planned to conduct a burglary at a gun store in Opal, Virginia.

The three suspects and the other two juveniles have been identified and are being held at the Loudoun County Juvenile Detention Center.

The group has also been responsible for other crimes in Loudoun County and West Virginia.
