Police Arrest Alleged Armed Robber Who Led Cops on Chase

Police in Miami Beach have arrested a man who was allegedly involved in an armed robbery in the area of Ocean Drive and Fourth Street Friday.

"He is okay," said Juan Prada, speaking about his coworker, who was robbed at gunpoint while working as a parking attendant at a lot on Miami Beach. "I'm not feeling good because it's supposed to be secure in this area. It's a very tourist place."

The suspect, who was later identified as 34-year-old Terence Daniely, stole $1,500 in cash, police said. 

Police said that when they responded to the call of the robbery, they found the car. That’s when police said the man shot his gun from the car.

"That vehicle saw our cops, discharged his firearm from the vehicle. Miraculously, no one was injured," said Ofc. Ernesto Rodriguez of Miami Beach Police.

Officials said the man led police on a chase across the MacArthur Causeway and into Miami. That’s when the man bailed from his car.

Police set up a perimeter between Northwest 11th to 12th Streets and Northwest 7th Court to 8th Avenue.

The man led police on an almost five hour manhunt. Ultimately, a K-9 unit was able to find the suspect.

The suspect, who has yet to be identified, was arrested in Miami's Overtown neighborhood. The man was described to be a black male, 5-foot-11, 200 pounds and was last seen wearing black pants and a hooded jacket.

"There's a lot that still needs to be pieced together to understand the subject's state of mind," said Ofc. Rodriguez. "But what we can report is a very dangerous man has been taken off the streets today."
