Authorities say detectives from the Frederick Police and the Maryland State Police noticed a white Honda SUV which matched one reported stolen. They followed at a safe distance while calling for backup. They were able to stop the vehicle at Ballenger Creek Pike and Crestwood Boulevard.

One of the teenagers in the SUV tried to run away with what appeared to be a Glock pistol. Officers were able to take him into custody and disarm him without incident. The Glock pistol turned out to be replica, not a real firearm.

An elderly man was brought to the scene to claim his vehicle.

During their investigation, police learned that one of  the juveniles in the SUV had stolen two other vehicles last month.
