On 02/11/20 at approximately 10:32 pm, K9 deputies located an occupied stolen Jeep Wrangler at the BP gas station (2790 Manatee Ave E.) A traffic stop was attempted in the parking lot, however, the vehicle immediately fled at a high rate of speed. A pursuit was initiated as the vehicle traveled south on 27th Street East. After several turns, the vehicle turned west on 11th Ave E and came to an abrupt stop. Speeds ranged from 30-60 mph and weather conditions were clear. No vehicles were damaged, and there was no traffic. The pursuit lasted approximately 1 minute and 28 seconds.

Just as the MCSO Aviation Unit arrived on scene, the occupants fled on foot and K9 followed through parking lots of several properties. After an extensive search, all 3 suspects were located by K9 and arrested with the assistance of Aviation.

Deputies have reason to believe the arrested subjects have been in involved in other recent stolen vehicle and carjacking cases.
