A burglary suspect was apprehended on foot in Boca Raton Saturday morning after a car chase that began in Lauderdale Lakes, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said.
The BSO was called at 8:45 a.m. about a residential burglary in progress at 3951 NW 45 Terrace in Lauderdale Lakes, agency spokeswoman Keyla Concepcion said in a statement.
Responding deputies saw the suspect’s black Mazda leaving the scene and tried to stop it, but the suspect drove away. On the 3300 block of Northwest 29th Street, the suspect rammed a deputy’s car into a pole and kept fleeing, Concepcion said.
Deputies later stopped the Mazda as it was traveling north on I-95 at West Palmetto Park Road. The suspect fled on foot but was taken into custody by a K-9 unit, Concepcion said.
Boca Raton Fire Rescue took the suspect to Boca Medical Center, she said.
