Last evening, at approximately 11:05pm, Richmond Heights reported an attempted carjacking in the garage at the Galleria. Suspects were last seen running from the garage, after they could not drive the vehicle because it had a manual transmission.
A Brentwood officer observed two of the suspects on the parking lot at Brentwood Square. When the suspects saw the officer, they ran west into the Brentwood Forest area. A few minutes later, another Brentwood officer observed the suspects driving a white Jeep Cherokee, on E. Swan Circle, at a high rate of speed. The vehicle had been taken in the 1400 block of Bluebird Terrace. The victims had returned home, when they were approached by two men, who demanded the woman’s purse and keys to the car. Both suspects were armed. The victims both complied, and the suspects left with the vehicle. The victims were not injured.
The suspects purposely rammed a Brentwood vehicle on Wrenwood Lane, and proceeded south on Brentwood Blvd. A long pursuit of the vehicle by several different agencies ended with a crash at Natural Bridge and Clara. Both suspects fled the scene.
Brentwood and Richmond Heights detectives are investigating the incident.
Brentwood Police are looking for three suspects in a shoplifting and assault at the Carter’s store in Brentwood Promenade.
The above pictured women entered the store on Friday March 4th. They took several items of clothing and left the store. A store employee tried to prevent them from leaving, and she was sprayed with a chemical irritant.
The women left the area in a purple or maroon colored car with Illinois license plates.
Anyone with information they may be helpful should call the Brentwood Police at 314-644-7100.
The Brentwood Police Department are joining with statewide law enforcement March 15-31 for an aggressive seat belt mobilization to crack down on Missouri’s seat belt law violators and to reduce roadway fatalities.
Only 68 percent of Missouri teens wear their seat belts when driving or riding in a motor vehicle. Eight out of ten teens killed in traffic crashes are unbuckled. Under the Graduated Driver’s License (GDL) law, teens are required to wear their seat belt as it’s a primary offense, meaning they can be pulled over solely for not wearing their seat belt.
Seat belt use is the single most effective way to protect people and reduce fatalities in motor vehicle crashes.
Let’s be careful out there!
