WEST MIAMI, Fla. - Two 17-year-old burglary suspects were taken into custody Tuesday morning after leading police on a chase in a stolen vehicle, West Miami Police Chief Nelson Andreu said.

Sky 10 was above the scene as police were handcuffing one of the suspects near Southwest Fourth Street and Southwest 77th Avenue.

The teenagers tried to burglarize a home but couldn't get inside, so they drove away in a white Honda Acura SUV that had been reported stolen three days earlier in South Miami, Andreu said.

During the chase, the driver of the stolen SUV struck several police cars, Andreu said.

The driver eventually lost control of the car and the suspects bailed out, but they were quickly taken into custody, Andreu said.
