Armed and dangerous suspect pursued: Dramatic takedown at 95/High Meadows exit in Palm City

(Source: MCSO)

From The Martin County Sheriff’s Office: A 2 a.m. call about a suspected armed and dangerous carjacker moving through Martin County had a dramatic ending following a pursuit through Martin County over the weekend.

Martin County Sheriff’s Deputies deployed stop sticks in an attempt to disable the stolen vehicle which was running speeds of more than 100-miles per hour in the northbound lanes of I-95.

The driver, 17-year old Vedlens Cineas of Boynton Beach, continued to run from deputies and troopers after hitting three-rounds of stop sticks.

The stingers punctured the tires of the stolen car slowing it down near the High Meadows exit.

That was just enough for a state trooper to conduct a pursuit intervention technique, or PIT maneuver.

The maneuver disabled the car and pushed it to the side of the road.

A swarm of law enforcement officers then approached the vehicle and went in for the take down.

No one was injured.

17-year old Vedlens Cineas was removed for the car at gunpoint.

He was transported back to Boynton Beach, where he was charged with Fleeing and Eluding, Grand Theft Auto, Possession of Cocaine with the Intent to Sell, and Possession of Heroin or Fentanyl with the Intent to Sell.
