Police were involved in a vehicle and foot chase in South Florida Tuesday that ended with three suspects detained, officials said.

The incident began in Miami-Dade County when detectives observed a suspicious vehicle that they discovered had been reported stolen, Miami-Dade Police officials said.

The detectives, who were in an unmarked car, followed the vehicle into Broward County, where Broward officials attempted to stop the suspicious vehicle but it fled, officials said.

Footage showed police in pursuit of the black Mercedes on Interstate 95 northbound before the car stopped and one suspect bailed out of the vehicle and a foot chase began.

The other two suspects immediately surrendered to police, officials said.

Multiple officers and at least one K-9 responded to the scene, and footage showed the third suspect who fled on foot being taken into custody.

No other information was immediately known.
