Three suspects, two teen boys and a 16-year-old girl, were nabbed Wednesday afternoon after police tracked a stolen car traveling at a high rate of speed in reverse on Monticello Drive.
Police arrested Tyrone Demario Doner, 18, Quashawn Rice, 17, and a girl, 16, after a 2008 Toyota Camry was stopped Wednesday on Monticello Drive at Florida Drive. Each faces a series of charges ranging from motor vehicle theft to burglary and firearms possession. With charges pending, Doner and Rice are held without bond in the Muscogee County Jail.
In a report, police said the Property Crimes Unit learned about a recently stolen Toyota and used a tracking device to locate the vehicle. The car was spotted traveling at a high rate of speed in reverse on Monticello Drive about 1 p.m. Wednesday before it struck an unmarked police car. Doner was the driver of the car before the occupants fled on foot. The suspects were taken into custody after a brief foot chase.
Inside the vehicle, police found a .380 caliber Walther semi-automatic pistol and a revolver, assorted tools commonly used to commit burglaries and other stolen property. Police said about $69,000 worth of stolen property has been recovered and returned to the owners after the suspects’ arrest.
