BELLEVUE, Wash. — Bellevue police say three teenage girls were arrested in a series of crimes that started with a carjacking in Spokane last week.

Police said after stealing the car in Spokane last Friday, the girls – ages 16 and 17, made their way to Seattle, where they’re accused of theft, robbery, assault and hit-and-run on Saturday.

Investigators said at one point, the teens got away from officers during a high-speed chase while crossing I-90 Sunday morning.

According to Bellevue police, about 11:20 a.m. Sunday, the girls needed gas money and robbed a woman in a parking lot near the Home Depot on 120th Avenue Northeast in Bellevue. Police said they knocked the woman down and drove over her arm.

They then used the woman’s credit card to buy gas and get their nails done.

When Bellevue police tracked down the girls, one was still having her nails done.

The three were arrested on charges of robbery, vehicular assault and fraud. Other charges are pending in other cities where they’re accused of committing crimes.
