robbery. however they're in the saying if complainant, the person who dialed 911 and the suspect knew each other, but it all played out right behind me here at this exxon gas staying. when police showed up to the gas station to figure out what exactly took place they looked for surveillance video and found that there is no surveillance video of what exactly happened. so they're relying on witness statements as well as their investigation to figure out how this all transpired. now, this video from this afternoon you'll see a man being detained there by police and according to a police report, the complainant says that a man driving a bmw with pennsylvania tags snatched his bag full of cash. that's when the suspect and yet another man in that bmw made it out of the gas station but only a few yards before they lost control of that car crashing into a wooded median. the complainant ultimately caught up with the suspect, but that second man in the car took off running with the bag of cash spilling some of that cash
a witness saw the commotion, says his gut told him to intervene and was able to keep the first suspects as well as the man who called police on the scene until cops arrived. here's how he says it wul played out. they were scheming between each other to run and i started asking the fire department to help me to top them to run because i couldn't stop both of them. but the only reason i could stop them was because the big guy wouldn't let go of the small guy. he kept on saying if he didn't get his h money back he was going to kill him. all i haded to do was top the one guy i physically stopped him from getting away and then we heard the cops finally coming. i said, look, if you try to run i am taking you out. then the cops pulled up and of course they ran down there and handcuffed him. there was lots of these stacks of money and it was like, there's money and then there was black paper and h then rhode island was like this wd
idea what it was. and then there was -- you know, the guy that ran away holding the bag, i meant a lot to him because like my wife said he didn't want to get rid of that bag an wasn't leaving it behind. >> and police say the amount of cash that was dropped on the ground was so significant they had to call in a currency counter to count the cash for them. now, tonight that third man who took off is being called by police a person of interest and police have yet to find him still no if all three of these men knew each other. marina maracco, fox5 a local news. >> now to some video that you will see only here on fox5. a fairfax county man chases down a thef caught in the act. h happened in a event serville neighborhood that's beg plaigd by p thefts. if you look at that video they mess with the wrong
home, goes after the suspect, catches him. all at four in the morning no less. this is a reminder to always lock up your car. this case, three people caught on camera were roaming the neighborhood in the middle of the night just checking door handles. you can see the three suspects as they round the corner and spread out. one man checks the door handle on the white car. then moves onto this unlocked truck. i heard something outside, so i checked my security cameras. i noticed that the door on my truck was on. scott wall says he told his wife to call police and ran outside. i said here i come. i was like, yeah, you're not getting away. wall caught up with the thieve, grabbed him and was able to get back the only thing taken from his truck, a sixed dollar fishing wife. but then the other people returned, it's a man and a woman who wall says he later learned is married to the guy who stole from him. he
hand. and when the wife moves up she has a harym. help is on the way from a neighbor who heard the altercation. >> he comes running down he has a handgun and he's on the phone with the police. luckily no one got injured. wall and his neighbor were able to keep eyes on the suspects until police arrived and arrested them. there's going to be a lot of people that says this isn't going to be start to do. i think when your knee a situation like that you have to gauge everything as it unfolds. the suspects are known drug users who live in the area. they were all addicts and they had been looking for, you know, tough steel to feed their habit is the impression i got. his neighborhood has had a lot of these theft cases lately with money and items taken from unlocked cars. from monthses and months and months there have been cars broken into. he hopes those conversations have come to an
that their cars gone into and things stolen out of them. my hope is that that now those guys are caught and those were the only people doing that and a we don't have a problem like that. just on a side note, wall owns an audio video company and that's why he has so much nice information in his home. we're work with police to more information on the suspects and whether or not they could be linked to more crimes. >> we'll hear present people who made it out of a fire in prince george's county when we come back.
