MIAMI BEACH (CBSMiami) — Authorities closed down several blocks along Miami Beach Thursday afternoon in search of an armed suspect in connection to a car theft.

Miami Beach Police tweeted out photos of Jasper Walker, who was “possibly armed and fled from a stolen vehicle this morning.”

Traffic between 41st Street and 46th Street along Collins Avenue was shut down temporarily as a police perimeter was set up.

A guest at the Fontainebleau Hotel took video of the empty streets in the area. A line of cars stopped in traffic is seen down the block.
