A high-speed chase across parts of Southern Florida resulted in the arrests of three people suspected to be involved in multiple robberies and wanted by several agencies.

The Collier Sheriff’s Office notified Florida State Troopers of a stolen Range Rover traveling east on Alligator Alley on Saturday.

The stolen Range Rover was found abandoned on Interstate 75 in Broward County. It was later discovered that the occupants of the Range Rover entered a black Mercedes sedan and fled east on Interstate 75, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

A short time later, troopers observed the Mercedes traveling recklessly at over 140 mph on I-75. State Troopers pursued the Mercedes and ended the chase with a PIT maneuver on Interstate 595, Flamingo Road, which was caught on FHP dashcam (see below).

According to troopers, they immediately arrested the Mercedes’ driver and the two occupants for multiple felonies, including reckless driving, fleeing and eluding, grand theft auto and possession of burglary tools, etc.

The Mercedes’ occupants are suspected to be involved in a string of robberies and vehicle thefts throughout Southwest and Southeast Florida. They were wanted by several agencies.

A fourth suspect linked with these events has yet to be caught.
