MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Montgomery Police officers took three people into custody Tuesday afternoon following two hit-and-run crashes.

A preliminary investigation indicated that a vehicle with three people inside it was traveling down Carter Hill Road in front of Jefferson Davis High School when the driver struck another vehicle.

The driver did not stop after the crash, and the driver of the second vehicle flagged down a nearby school security officer to whom they reported the crash and pointed toward the fleeing automobile.

The fleeing vehicle struck another vehicle as the went through the intersection of Hermitage and McGehee. The crash caused the fleeing vehicle to overturn in the roadway.

Police say all three people inside the overturned automobile fled the scene on foot but were taken into custody a short time later.

After the crash, the Montgomery Police Department recovered property from the Black Nissan Sentra that the suspects were driving and confirmed that the property was stolen from a residence in the 5600 block of Calmar Drive earlier in the day. 

The MPD has charged Robert Edwards, Ledarrius Ollison, and Charles McMeans with one count each of Burglary 3rd degree and Theft of Property 1st degree. All three subjects are currently being held in the MCDF under bonds totaling $45,000 each.
