SLC Deputies and PSL Police catch teenage car thieves.
St Lucie County Deputies responded to the 4600 block of Paleo Pines Circle on Sunday night. The victim reported their vehicle was stolen from their driveway by three younger black males on bicycles.
Then a complaint was received of a reckless driver at U.S. 1 and Rio Mar. This was around 3 am. The vehicle matched the description of the stolen car. Deputies attempted to stop the car, but it fled at a high rate of speed.
Port St. Lucie Police Department officers located the vehicle near Savona and Gatlin driving over 90 mph with no headlights. The suspects ended up colliding with a tree on SW Calabria. The occupants bailed out on foot into the neighborhood.
The Sheriff’s Office Aviation Unit, along with Tactical Flight Officer Singley precisely guided PSL officers on the ground, including K-9, in locating 17-year-old Robert Works who tried to hide in a resident’s parked vehicle in their driveway. He was taken into custody by PSL officers without incident.
Then the air unit located a second suspect, 15-year-old Jeremy Warren in a wooded lot nearby. He was taken into custody as well.
