Police in Fairfax County, Virginia have identified the four men arrested Thursday after a car chase ended with the crash of a carjacked SUV on U.S. Route 1.

Police said Kaseem Pierce, 20, of Maryland, was the driver, and was charged with grand larceny-auto theft, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, disregard police command to stop and driving without a valid license.

Daneko Mitchell, 18, of Maryland, has been charged with grand larceny-auto theft and possession with intent to distribute marijuana.

William Sanchez and Davon Alston, both 19 and both from Maryland, have been charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and receiving stolen goods.

The incident began when the police saw an SUV that had been reported stolen in a carjacking from Prince George’s County, Maryland, heading north on Route 1 south of the Beltway just before 5 p.m.

The four men in the vehicle suffered what the police called minor injuries. Officers reportedly found guns and drugs in the SUV.
