    Three suspects were arrested after police chased a car from Tysons Corner Center to I-395.

    Three people suspected in a theft at the Tysons Corner Center mall were arrested on I-395 in Virginia Tuesday morning after the driver fled from police, officials say.

    The Fairfax County Police Department's Tysons Urban Team was investigating a larceny case at a department store in the mall about 11:40 a.m. when the suspects took off in a car, police said. 

    Nearby officers located the car and tried to use a traffic stop to halt the suspects, but the driver kept going, police said.

    The pursuit continued into Arlington County, where Arlington County, Fairfax County and Virginia State police were finally able to stop the driver. 

    An image distributed by police shows a gray sedan stopped on the highway and surrounded by three police cars. The image shows one person with their hands in the air and another person appearing to be approached by officers.

    Three people were taken into police custody.

    The investigation is ongoing.
