Howard County Police have charged four teens in connection with a weekend carjacking in Savage, Md. that ended in Laurel.

Police say that two teenagers robbed and stole a car belonging to a pizza delivery driver in the 9100 block of Thamesmeade Road in Savage on the night of July 16. The suspects took off in the driver's 2010 Toyota 4runner.

Officers in Laurel located the stolen car in the 9200 block of Washington Boulevard in Laurel about five hours later. Three suspects in the car were arrested, while a fourth fled on foot and was arrested Wednesday.

The following four teenagers are charged with carjacking, robbery, second-degree assault, motor vehicle theft, theft and conspiracy to commit carjacking:

-Kevin Murillo-Osorio, 18, of Jessup
-Yazell Ronnie Spencer, 17 of Jessup
-Niles Anthony Spencer, 16, of Jessup
-A 15-year-old female who was charged as a juvenile

A police investigation has led authorities to believe that Spencer ordered a pizza to lure the victim to the Savage home, where he and Mercer robbed the driver. Spencer is believed to be the driver of the vehicle.

The juvenile female was charged and released July 17. Murillo-Osorio posted $25,000 bond and was released on July 18. Mercer was originally charged as a juvenile but was re-charged as an adult Wednesday.

Spencer is identified as the suspect who fled from officers.
