A 19-year-old from Reston was jailed after Herndon Police Department officers say he ran from a traffic stop.

According to police, Tyquan Quantae Johnson was pulled over on March 2 in the 800 block of Alabama Drive. As soon as the vehicle stopped, according to the report, Johnson got out and fled on foot.

The Fairfax County Police Department helicopter was involved in the search for Johnson, police say, and he was located in the 400 block of Pickett Lane.

From the report:

“[Johnson] was arrested for driving while suspended, possession of marijuana, eluding on foot and displaying a fictitious license plate. He was transported to Fairfax County Adult Detention Center, where he was held on bond.”

Police say four occupants of the vehicle were also cited for possession of marijuana.
