While monitoring a large Rap concert at the nightclub D3/Underground,uniformed and undercover officers came across a confirmed stolen vehicle out of St Petersburg. As officers moved in to arrest the two B/M suspects occupying the vehicle, they jumped a curb in front of them and began fleeing N/B to I275. A pursuit was initiated and led the Tampa Police over to St Petersburg, ending on 54th Ave S. at an apartment complex called the Enclave. With the assistance of the TPD helicopter and the St Petersburg Police K9 unit, one suspect was taken into custody after fleeing on foot from the stolen car. There were no injuries to officers or suspect, and no damage to any vehicles.This investigation is ongoing.
