MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Two people are in custody after an early morning home invasion robbery in northeast Miami-Dade.
Just before 2 a.m., several males kicked in the door of a residence at 356 NE 111th Street and stole the keys to a Ford F-150 and 2010 Dodge Charger which were parked out front.
Investigators caught a break in their search for the stolen vehicles.
“One of the vehicles (Ford) was equipped with a locating device and they were able to search that signal and locate the vehicle in the area of 99th Street and NW 11th Avenue not far from the actual incident,” said Miami-Dade police spokesman Det. Alvaro Zabaleta. “Once they located the vehicle they saw a black pick up truck occupied by approximately four black males. When the officers attempted to detain the vehicle, the vehicle fled from the officers.”
There was a short chase before the four suspects bailed out of the truck in the area of NW 15th Avenue and NW 41st Street.
Police in the area set up a perimeter and were able to take two of the four suspects into custody. Police were able to recover the Ford F-150 but the Dodge Challenger is still missing.
