Leesburg, Virginia, police have cleared an initial suspect of charges in a series of reckless driving incidents in Northern Virginia on Saturday afternoon, according to a news release from the department Monday.
Pablo Enrique Orellana-Flores, 34, a resident of Northern Virginia, was arrested by the Fredericksburg Police Department on Sunday, but after further investigation, he is no longer a suspect. Authorities said all related charges against Orellana-Flores, which included multiple felonies, have been dismissed.
The department continues its search for the person responsible for several crashes beginning about 4 p.m. in Leesburg.
However, police said they recovered the vehicle identified in the investigation — a white 2016 Chevrolet Camaro with Texas license plates “RPP2024” — in a parking lot in the 700 block of Fieldstone Drive NE around 1 a.m. Sunday, where it had been left unoccupied.
At the time of the incidents Saturday afternoon, police said officers attempted to stop the Camaro for alleged speeding.
The department said the driver sped away from officers westbound on East Market Street — officers did not pursue the vehicle “in consideration of public safety.”
