Carjacking suspect found in freezer while trying to escape Capitol police


Two suspects accused of carrying out a series of armed carjackings in the Washington, D.C. area were found and arrested Tuesday after hiding in a restaurant’s outdoor freezer. US Capitol Police said.

Shortly before noon, a police patrol tried to tow a white BMW sedan down E Street in a suspected carjacking incident, but the car slowed.

The BMW smashed into a Capitol Police van before ramming a Capitol Police SUV, officials said. Considered armed and dangerous, his two suspects fled the car and hid inside a freezer behind a restaurant along Pennsylvania Avenue before being found and arrested.

Capitol Police have identified the suspects as 18-year-old Cedae Hardy and 18-year-old Landrell Jordan. A gun and high-capacity magazine were seized, officials said.

Hardy and Jordan are charged with unauthorized use of a vehicle, carrying an unlicensed pistol, reckless driving, and assault with a deadly weapon.
