FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – The Broward Sheriff’s Office Burglary Apprehension Team (B.A.T.) took down members of a suspected high end auto theft group last Monday which resulted in the arrests of seven people and the recovery of a luxury car and two stolen guns. 

According to authorities, on Monday, May 10, B.A.T. detectives located a stolen 2020 Range Rover SVR in Fort Lauderdale and began surveillance on the vehicle, which was reported stolen out of Highland Beach in Palm Beach County. The driver of the stolen vehicle traveled through several areas of Broward County, stopping occasionally as other vehicles met up with them. At one point, detectives witnessed people inside the stolen car attempting to disable the vehicle’s GPS system.

Preliminary investigation reveals that Teandray Lemon, 19, of Fort Lauderdale, stole the vehicle in Highland Beach and planned to sell the vehicle to Quevaris Turnquist, 31, of Miami through an intermediary, Latorykka Mallory, 18, of North Lauderdale.
