D.C. police have arrested teens accused of serial carjacking after they hid in an outdoor freezer.

Two teenage carjacking suspects who were trying to escape from US Capitol police after a dramatic car chase briefly took refuge in the freezer of an open-air restaurant on Tuesday, police said.

Sede Hardy and Landrell Jordan, 18, were arrested after police found them hiding in a refrigerator, the department said in a statement. They were charged with car theft, carrying a deadly weapon without a license, and running away.

The arrests ended a wild pursuit that began at 11:45 a.m. in Washington DC’s East End when a USCP officer spotted a white BMW sedan believed to be linked to a spate of armed car thefts in the neighboring county.

The police, who believed that the two drivers of the car were armed and dangerous, tried to stop the traffic, but the teenagers sped off.

During the chase, the hijackers cut off a police van and then crashed into a police SUV, the department said.

It was then that the police reported that Hardy and Jordan had fled.

The police sealed the scene.
