Police have identified two suspects that led them on a thirty-five minute car chase.

The incident happened before 12:30 p.m. on Friday, October 5, when Baltimore County Police in Essex were asked to check on a silver Scion believed to be involved in a Virginia homicide.

Officers located and tried to stop the vehicle as it was leaving a parking lot near the Back River off Eastern Boulevard. 

After pursuing the vehicle through several County precincts, officers were able to place the two subjects in custody in the 12500 block of Eastern Avenue near Ebenezer Road after 1 p.m.

The driver has since been identified as 38-year-old Melissa Joyce Moen of the 100 block of Wiltshire Road. She is being held without bond at the Baltimore County Detention Center pending extradition.

Passenger, Christopher Levar Cox, 33, of the 300 block of Magnolia Terrace is also being held without bond and is awaiting extradition. He was also served a Baltimore County warrant that had been obtained earlier in the year for unrelated charges including burglary, theft and credit card fraud.

Baltimore County Police officials confirmed both Moen and Cox had warrants for their arrests issued by the Hampton Police Division in Virginia, in connection to a homicide.

Officials say local charges will be coordinated with Virginia law enforcement following extradition procedures.
