K9 units pursued the fleeing suspects with assistance from Guardian 1 air support.

Four vehicle theft suspects were detained after a police chase that began with a fleeing vehicle, followed by a foot pursuit on Wednesday.

At approximately 11:45 p.m., Federal Way police officers initiated a pursuit with a confirmed stolen vehicle, police said. The vehicle fled toward Adelaide Beach where police employed a PIT maneuver to stop the vehicle.

Police detained one suspect at the vehicle, while three others fled on foot. Officers observed a handgun in the rear passenger area of the stolen vehicle.

Federal Way and Auburn police K9 units pursued the fleeing suspects, and with assistance from King County Sheriff’s Office Guardian 1 air support, the suspects were located running on the beach, police said. All three outstanding suspects were eventually captured.

The driver of the stolen vehicle was booked into King County Juvenile Detention and an adult passenger was booked at SCORE jail. The other two juvenile suspects were interviewed and released to their parents.
