MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FL – The Miami-Dade Police Department (MDPD) arrested three individuals for fleeing and eluding law enforcement officers and demonstrating a willful disregard to public safety.

According to authorities, as part of the Intersection Takeover Detail, the MDPD, Homeland Security Bureau, gathered intelligence of the possibility of vehicles gathering to takeover an intersection. In collaboration with its Priority Response Team (PRT), Robbery Intervention Detail (RID), North Operations Division, and the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP), a proactive saturation detail was initiated. MDPD Aviation Units observed several vehicles gathering in a shopping center parking lot, located at SW 8 Street & SW 137 Avenue. A black charger with white stripping was observed driving in a reckless manner and at a high rate of speed.

Aviation Units notified officers in the nearby area and provided them with the vehicle description. Responding officers located the vehicle and attempted to conduct a traffic stop and the black charger fled from the officers at a high rate of speed. The Aviation Units continued to follow the vehicle as it continued to drive at a high rate of speed through Miami-Dade and Broward County. RID detectives located the vehicle in the northwest area of Miami-Dade County. The driver, Chenel Chevalier, and passenger, Chelsy Gamez, fled from the vehicle on foot and jumped into an awaiting vehicle driven by Timothy Washington. RID detectives were able to take all three subjects into custody.

Investigators identified the vehicle to be the same vehicle that was seen last week on social media driving recklessly in circles around responding marked MDPD police vehicles at the intersection of NW 183 Street and NW 57 Avenue. The initiative yielded five arrests, one Civil Citation for Possession of Marijuana, one firearm, and four vehicles impounded.
