Police pursuing stolen military vehicle on I-95

Stolen Tank Virginia USA Richmond Ford Pickett Interstate 95

The vehicle was stolen by a soldier and driven off Fort Pickett, according to Virginia State Police Sgt. Keeli Hill said in a press conference.

The vehicle can reach speeds of 45 miles per hour, according to the Times-Dispatch, and because police could not stop the vehicle, they elected to escort it throughout the chase.

Hill said no injuries or accidents were reported as a result of the chase.

Virginia State Police said Joshua Philip Yabut of Richmond was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of drugs, eluding police and unauthorized use of a vehicle. Still, the Virginia State Police determined it had no way to stop the vehicle and elected to escort it instead to keep bystanders safe.

The vehicle appeared to be a model that was once used in front line combat but has since been replaced and employed mainly in support roles.

More video sent to 8News shows the armored vehicle racing down Broad Street in Richmond as police give chase. Yabut is being held at the Richmond jail.

Along with the M133, these armored personnel carriers are in the process of getting phased out of U.S. Army service, and they mostly exist in National Guard units along with other dated machinery.

"Witnesses say he drove the vehicle up on the median, stopped, got out and started walking around".

Technically, the vehicle, stolen from Fort Pickett in nearby Nottoway County, was an armored personnel carrier and, according to police, carried no weapons or munitions. At this time the vehicle is headed on North on I-95 towards Richmond, Va.

The vehicle has been recovered and returned to Fort Pickett with no significant damage. The Richmond Times-Dispatch said NASA could not immediately confirm the Lieutenant's claim that he had worked for them in this capacity directly between 2014 and 2017.
