An armoured personnel carrier was stolen from a base in Virginia and taken on a two-hour ride, and the driver is now in custody
A man was arrested on Tuesday night after stealing an armored personnel carrier from a military base in Virginia and taking it on a joyride that ended in a police chase. As the vehicle’s maximum speed was about 40 miles an hour, it wasn’t quite a high-speed chase – but it was certainly dramatic.
The suspect, believed to be a soldier, took the military vehicle from Fort Pickett, an army national guard base in Blackstone, Virginia. He then drove it into Richmond, towards the Capitol building, followed by police squads
