Orlando Burglary Spurs Police Chase and Helicopter Search


Earlier this month, Orlando-area residents witnessed quite the scene as two helicopters and nearly a dozen police vehicles surrounded Crossroads Apartments in search of armed suspects. For one family, however, it was a bit more than a police chase.

It started about eight miles away when a homeowner found suspects burglarizing his Doctor Phillips-area home. The burglars stuck around just long enough to point a gun at the victim before jumping in a vehicle to flee the scene.

Police officers located the vehicle, and the suspects fled once more. This time, they led officers on a chase that would result in a crash. Two suspects were ultimately taken into custody, while police continued to look for more – bringing in a pair of Orange County Sheriff’s helicopters to assist in the search.

While Doctor Phillips is one of Orlando’s safest neighborhoods, this incident reminds us crime happens everywhere and when you least expect it.
