VIRGINIA BEACH, VA – On August 2, 2022, officers from the Virginia Beach Police Department’s (VBPD) Second Precinct Crime Suppression Squad were working a special assignment to focus on the numerous larcenies from motor vehicle cases throughout the city, specifically the Ashville Park neighborhood where video captured armed individuals committing several theft offenses from unattended vehicles.   

While conducting surveillance, VBPD officers observed a stolen vehicle near the intersection of S. Military Highway and Indian River Road that was related to their investigation. The officers attempted a traffic stop on the vehicle, but the vehicle fled. After a brief vehicle pursuit that ended in the City of Chesapeake, one of the suspects was taken into custody without incident with the assistance of both the Chesapeake and Norfolk Police Departments. The other two suspects who were in the vehicle fled on foot and are still outstanding. Two illegally possessed firearms were recovered from the vehicle.   

The arrested subject was identified as Tyler Bardill, (M/20) of Chesapeake, VA. He is currently charged with Credit Card Theft, Credit Card Fraud, and Possession of Stolen Property. This case remains under investigation.
