On November 21st at approximately 7:33 a.m., officers responded to the 700th block of John F. Kennedy Blvd. on a report of a stolen motor vehicle. According to the 44-year-old female victim, sometime between 400 and 7:30 a.m., her 2017 GMC Terrain had been stolen.
A description of the vehicle was relayed to all available units and a search for the vehicle ensued. At roughly 8:51 a.m., police dispatch notified all units that an On-Star alert
was being received by the victim, advising her that the vehicle is parked in the area of 1241 JFK Blvd.
Officers toured the area and were able to locate the vehicle parked along a fence at the rear of 1225 JFK Blvd. Upon approaching the vehicle, they observed both the front driver and passenger door opened and two males exit the vehicle, police said.
The two males were later identified as Ross and Hernandez. As the officers attempted to engage them, both fled and a foot pursuit ensued after numerous commands to stop running were given to both males.
A description of both actors were given and multiple units responded to the scene to establish a perimeter. Both suspects were apprehended a short while later in the area and a key to the stolen GMC was recovered from Hernandez’s pocket, authorities said.
During the on-scene investigation, it was learned that a third individual, Adbelnour, was also involved in the theft.
While officers cleared the scene, they observed Adbelnour walking in front of 1225 JFK Blvd.
Abdelnour was stopped for further investigation and with the help of K-9 units from the HCSO, he was positively identified as being inside of the vehicle after the K-9 units picked up on his scent inside of the SUV, officials said.
