BELLEVUE, Wash. -- Three teenage girls have entered not guilty pleas to multiple charges that include robbery and identity theft.
They are under arrest after a crime spree that left a long trail of victims across Washington state before officers finally nabbed the trio as they were having their nails done at a Bellevue salon, police say.
The girls - all aged 16 or 17 years old - kicked off their cross-state rampage Friday when they carjacked a maroon vehicle in Spokane, Bellevue police said.
They then fled to the Seattle area in the stolen car, where they are accused of theft, robbery, assault and hit-and-run last Saturday.
This past Sunday, they three were able to elude police by taking off on Interstate 90 at extremely high speeds, police said.
Later on Sunday morning, the teens were looking for gas money. They robbed a woman in a parking lot in the 300 block of 120th Avenue NE, knocked her down and drove over her arm, police said.
The three then went to buy gas and get their nails done at a salon, using the victim’s credit card, according to police.
Bellevue officers quickly tracked the suspects down and took them into custody. One was still having her nails manicured when police arrived.
"These criminals ran rampant across the state until arriving in Bellevue, where they were greeted by our officers and taken into custody," said Bellevue Police Chief Steve Mylett. "This is another example of why you don’t come to Bellevue to commit crime - you’re gonna get caught."
The Seattle Times reports that two of the girls remain in detention and face charges of first-degree robbery, possession of a stolen vehicle and second-degree identity theft. One 16-year-old has been released. She is charged with taking a motor vehicle without permission and two counts of second-degree identity theft.
