HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) - Four suspects arrested after a Thursday police pursuit that started in Henrico’s West End and ended in a crash in Richmond appeared in court Friday.

Jasmine Fisher, 23, Trevor Montague, Jr., 20, Aaron Brockington, Jr., 23, and Jerald Liggins, Jr., 26,  are all charged with conspiracy to commit burglary.

Montague, Brockington and Liggins were also charged with firearm and grand larceny crimes. Police said a handgun was found in the vehicle.

Officers responded to a suspicious situation call in the area of Sycamore Lane and Gibralatar Drive around 1:30 p.m. Thursday, according to Henrico County Police. A vehicle observed leaving that scene was spotted by an officer near Parham and Ackley Avenue.  When the officer tried to stop the vehicle, the driver took off.

The suspects’ vehicle eventually crashed at Mechanicsville Turnpike and Cool Lane in Richmond — approximately 10 miles from where police first spotted the car.  None of the suspects were hurt.

All four suspects made their initial court appearance on Friday. All four will be given a court-appointed attorney. Their preliminary hearings are scheduled over the next two months.
