Three teenagers have been arrested in connection with a series of golf cart robberies at Hidden Creek Country Club in Reston.

Police arrested an 18-year-old from Lynchburg, a 14-year-old and a 16-year-old in connection with an Aug. 16 incident.

That day, around 6:40 p.m., one of the teenagers reportedly brandished a gun when an employee approached the group of teens, who were suspected of stealing golf carts in the past. During the verbal fight, one teenager brandished a gun, according to the Fairfax County Police Department.

Later, around 8:06 p.m., the same group of teenagers reportedly stole a golf cart and crashed it. The group then robbed a party of golfers at gunpoint and drove away.

In both instances, police failed to find the individuals despite a helicopter-assisted search.

Police told FFXnow that three golf carts were also stolen on Aug. 13, but the management of the golf course did not seek to prosecute the case. The golf carts were recovered after a chase.

The FCPD announced yesterday (Sunday) that the individuals had been arrested and charged.

The 18-year-old faces a charge of possession of a firearm with an altered serial number. The 16-year-old was charged with possession of Schedule I/II Narcotics, and possession of a firearm while in possession of certain substances. The 14-year-old was charged with robbery, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, and underage possession of a firearm.

Four guns and suspected narcotics were discovered during the course of the investigation, police said.
