BALTIMORE, MD. — Baltimore Police report that on December 30, 2017, at approximately 12:45 am, Western District officers attempted to stop a vehicle for a traffic violation, in the 1400 block of N. Monroe Street. The vehicle, a BMW, initially pulled over for officers, but then sped off from the location.
A short time later, the BMW was involved in a crash with another vehicle, in the 2500 block of Edmondson Avenue. The driver of the BMW was arrested after he tried to run away from the crash scene.
Officers recovered a loaded handgun from the suspect. Officers also found a handgun and drugs inside the suspects’ vehicle.
The suspect has been identified as 30-year old Andreas Richardson Jr, of 832 Newington Avenue, Baltimore, Md. He was transported to the hospital to be treated for injuries sustained in the crash.
A passenger inside the vehicle that Richardson struck was also transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Court records show Richardson was committed to jail with a preliminary hearing set for Jan. 24, 2017 in Baltimore City District Court.
