MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Just before 4 p.m. Wednesday, Miami-Dade police put an end to a chase that wound through northwest Miami Dade.
“The GPS system found where it was,” said Rev. Jorin Williams, the owner of the stolen SUV.
William’s blue Honda Element wound up crashed against this fence in northwest Miami-Dade. The vehicle had been stolen the night before.
The reverend tracked it using the locator device that finance companies place in vehicles. He found it Wednesday morning called police and waited.
“We saw the four perpetrators approach the vehicle get in the vehicle and pull off,” Williams said.
Williams followed and called police again.
Finally, the police joined the chase. It came to an end in the area of NW 27th Avenue and 96th Street.
Two of four car thieves tried hiding under a car, but couldn’t fool the K-9 units that sniffed them out.
The two young women were quickly detained.
Miami-Dade police systematically corralled the two additional male subjects.
It was a successful day for police, and persistence paying off for the victim.
“I wanted to do something physical but me being a minister. I really did not want to take it that far,” Williams said.
