    It's a plot made for the movies. A police chase that started in Fairfax County came to a dramatic end 10 miles away in Prince George's County. It ended with extensive damage to a Mercedes Benz and multiple police cars. It's a bizarre crime that can only be broken down by Pat Collins.

    An unusual police chase that began with a robbery in Virginia ended with an arrest in Prince George’s County, Md.

    Officers pursued the Mercedes-driving suspect after a woman in Fairfax County called police about an unwelcome acquaintance in her home. She saw the man she knows as "Boo" leaving her house and discovered $200 and credit cards missing from her purse.

    The man led police into Maryland on a 20-minute, 10-mile chase, running into three Fairfax County police cruisers and three barriers on an access road before crashing to a stop.

    Charges are pending.

    The Mercedes bore D.C. tags 485 with an image of a rose. Such low tag numbers with a rose are assigned by the mayor and council members.
