The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said two juveniles who stole a vehicle in Broward County were taken into custody early Tuesday morning near Lantana Road.

The incident began around 1 a.m. in Hollywood.

Police say a security guard working at a dealership notified them that he saw three to five vehicles drive through the gate.

A K-9 officer followed them until Broward County sheriff's deputies began a pursuit. At the Palm Beach County line, PBSO began following the suspects.

PBSO said they received a call from the Hollywood Police Department advising to be on the lookout for two stolen vehicles heading northbound on Interstate 95.  

A PBSO helicopter followed the vehicle to Lantana Road until the robbers bailed out near a Costco in the 1800 block of Lantana Rd.

Deputies searched the area for 15 minutes and located the juveniles, ages 14 and 15, who were taken into custody around 2:30 a.m.

The two stolen vehicles, 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limiteds, were recovered, said PBSO.
