The end of a police chase caused traffic backups on I-95 in Boca Raton Monday afternoon.

The chase ended in the northbound lanes north of Yamato Road, according to WSVN.

Video from the station's helicopter showed several Broward Sheriff's Office deputies with guns drawn on the interstate.

They pulled over a silver-colored Hyundai and detained the people inside.

Officials said the vehicle was reportedly stolen and possibly involved in an armed robbery as it headed into Broward County and was spotted by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office helicopter, WSVN said.

The car darted around Deerfield Beach and then headed north on I-95 where BSO gave chase, according to WSVN.

It ended just north of Yamato Road.

Three people are reportedly in custody.
