On October 17, Lower Paxton Police were advised of a robbery that had occurred at the Tanger Outlets in Derry Township at approximately 4:42 pm. Dauphin County Dispatch advised that 3-4 subjects had utilized pepper spray to commit the robbery and had fled the area in a white Chevrolet SUV with a temporary Delaware registration plate.
Lower Paxton units responded to the Interstate 81 overpasses to monitor traffic and to be on the lookout for the white SUV.
At approximately 5:06 pm, Lower Paxton Police were dispatched to the Ulta Beauty Store on Jonestown Road for a report of a robbery. Dauphin County Dispatch advised that three black males had used pepper spray to commit the robbery and had fled the area in an unknown direction.
At 5:07 pm, a responding Lower Paxton Police unit observed a white SUV traveling east on Jonestown Road. The SUV displayed a temporary Delaware registration plate. Multiple units converged and attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the SUV. The SUV failed to stop and police units pursued.
The fleeing SUV was able to merge onto Interstate 81-S by way of N. Mountain Road. The SUV merged onto I-83 South and side swiped two vehicles as it passed them. Multiple jurisdictions from both Dauphin and Cumberland Counties responded to assist LPPD. The pursuit continued into Cumberland County and onto State Route 581.
The SUV exited PA 581 at the State Road 15 South exit ramp toward Gettysburg. While navigating the exit ramp, the white SUV rammed the side of a pursing police unit. The white SUV spun into the grass adjacent to the exit ramp. The driver again attempted to flee but was blocked in by other responding units.
Once the SUV was stopped, the occupants refused to comply with commands to show their hands and remained inside the locked SUV. The front window of the SUV was breached and LPPD’s K-9 was deployed. The driver of the SUV continued to resist efforts to take him into custody and he forcibly kicked the Police K-9. Eventually, LPPD was able to remove the suspects from the SUV and take them into custody with the assistance of neighboring jurisdictions. The driver was bit on the foot by the K-9 but there were no other injuries to any of the suspects.
The four suspects were identified as: Jordan Brisbane (29); Lamar Brisbane (27); Shajuawa Ford (32) and Jeremy Hawkins (22). The suspects appear to be from the Charleston, South Carolina area and the temporary registration tag on the SUV appears to be fraudulent or stolen.
LPPD received additional information that a similar robbery occurred on October 17 at the outlets in Lancaster.
The four suspects were transported to the Dauphin County Judicial Center where they were processed and arraigned. Each were charged with multiple crimes including Robbery, Aggravated Assault, Aggravated Assault on Law Enforcement and Resisting Arrest. The driver, Jordan Brisbane, will face additional charges for kicking the Police K-9, fleeing and eluding and reckless driving.
All of the suspects were placed in Dauphin County Prison in lieu of bail.
LPPD would like to thank all the surrounding agencies and Dauphin County Dispatch for their assistance in the apprehension of these suspects.
