A man and a woman were taken into custody Friday morning after causing a police chase on Florida’s Turnpike in Broward County. The chase ended at the Pompano Beach service station just north of Atlantic Boulevard. According to a spokesperson for the Broward Police Department, a detective saw the man entering a store in the 500 block of Northwest 15th Street after concealing a gun around 10 a.m. The detective then saw him leaving the store in a suspicious manner and getting into the driver’s seat of a white BMW. Authorities attempted to pull the car over, but the man refused to stop leading to a chase. Deputies pursued the man until the man bailed out at a service station and ran off. The man eventually surrendered to deputies and was arrested. A woman who was a passenger in the vehicle was also apprehended in the parking lot. According to authorities, a stolen gun and drugs were recovered at the scene. The man involved in the chase was a convicted felon with an active warrant out of Osceola County for fleeing and eluding. The man and woman’s identities have not yet been released. No further details were released.
