Chamblee, GA, September 26, 2016 – The Post Reports – On 09/13/16, with the assistance of a Doraville Police K-9, Chamblee Officers were able to apprehend 4 juvenile black males who fled from the Brookhaven Police Department into the City of Chamblee.
According to Chamblee Police, the juveniles headed northbound on Peachtree Road and Officer Garcia attempted a traffic stop on the juveniles. The juveniles fled but Chamblee Police did not give chase, but continued following the juveniles northbound on Peachtree Road.
Eventually Brookhaven Officers observed the vehicle backed-in between several trailers at the RR Donnelly printing plant on Peachtree Rd. Brookhaven Officers approached the car and 4-5 black males fled into the wooded area. Sgt. Lyons tracked with a Doraville Police K9 through the woods.
Officer Taylor saw four of the suspects next to 3651 Clemson Dr. Officer Taylor, Officer Garcia and Sgt. Collar took two of the juveniles into custody. Sgt. Lyons continued tracking with Doraville Police K9 and they located a third suspect in the woods. Sgt. Lyons took the juvenile into custody in the woods.
It appeared as if the Officers lost the last juvenile but shortly thereafter Chamblee Officers received a call from the owner of BCW at 3651 Clemson Drive. The owner stated that he saw another suspect on his video system running through his back lot and towards a vacant building. Officer Garcia and Sgt. Lyons were about to enter the abandoned building when Officer Garcia observed the suspect hiding in the back of a trailer full of pine straw. The juvenile gave no resistance and was taken into custody. The juvenile was also in possession of car keys which was to the stolen vehicle the juveniles were using.
An inventory was conducted on the stolen vehicle that contained numerous items from other auto break-ins including at least one gun. The juveniles were turned over to Brookhaven Police Department.
Brookhaven Police Major Brandon Gurley told The Post, one of the Juveniles was wearing an ankle monitoring device from a previous crime.
