Three of five Winchester, Va., teenagers arrested Dec. 23 in a stolen car after a high-speed chase were committed Monday to the Noyes Detention Center in Rockville to await trial.
The other two teens had been released to their parents shortly after they were found hiding under a truck off Walnut Point Road at the end of the chase by Maryland State Police.
The four boys and one girl ranged in age from 13 to 17, police said.
The chase began at U.S. 40 and Interstate 70 shortly after 10:30 p.m. on Dec. 23. Reaching speeds in excess of 110 mph, the vehicle passed several vehicles on the berm of the road and at one point turned off its lights to avoid detection, police said.
Several Washington County sheriff's deputies joined in the pursuit, which led out westbound U.S. 40 west of Gateway Avenue where the teenagers ran from the car.
