A team of officers was patrolling the Florida area when their attention was drawn to a suspicious individual carrying a bag. Sensing the approaching police presence, the suspect attempted to evade capture by fleeing the scene. However, law enforcement officials successfully cornered the individual within a nearby yard.

In their search of the suspect’s bag, the officers discovered an AK47 rifle, along with two magazines loaded with ammunition. Additionally, the bag contained masks and gloves, potentially indicating the suspect’s involvement in criminal activities.

Investigations led the officers to discover two stolen vehicles within the same yard. These vehicles were identified as being associated with Sunnyside and Dawnpark theft cases, further solidifying the link between the suspects and organized vehicle theft operations.

Both the individual in possession of the AK47 rifle and the owner of the yard were apprehended by law enforcement. They face multiple charges, including possession of stolen vehicles and possession of an unlicensed firearm with ammunition.
