HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – Detectives followed three teens in a silver four-door Chevrolet Impala for a day.

The Broward Sheriff's Office tracked the reputed gang members with a history of burglarizing homes in Miami-Dade and Broward counties back in November.

Kevin O'Brien Lewis, 19, is from Hollywood, and his two 17-year-old accomplices are from Miramar and Hallandale Beach. Their Nov. 19 crime spree would lead to their arrest. 

They started in Hollywood about 1:15 p.m. They then moved to Miami Gardens at 16340 NW 37 Ct. And later, they drove to the Windsor Circle neighborhood in Miramar and tried to break into a home at 8201 Windsor Dr.

They were clumsy and left finger prints all over the homes of their victims. Some hours later, detectives and an aviation unit followed the car to the 1500 block of Ives Diary Road and arrested them.
