A late night car chase from Pompano Beach to Fort Lauderdale ended with two people in jail.
Bobby Clyde Bean, 52, and Chloe Jamison, 24, both of Pompano Beach, are facing charges that include grand theft auto and resisting arrest, court records show.
A Broward Sheriff’s Office helicopter with a night-vision camera helped patrol cars on the ground chase a white Mercedes-Benz that Miami-Dade police reported stolen at gunpoint Monday night.
The car was found pulling out of a parking lot in the 100 block of Northwest Seventh Avenue in Pompano Beach about 12:03 a.m. Tuesday. Deputies attempted a traffic stop but the car sped away.
The helicopter and deputies followed the Mercedes for almost an hour heading south on U.S. 1 and then on State Road A1A along Fort Lauderdale beach. The car turned onto Northeast 16 Street but hit a dead end near homes on the Intracoastal Waterway.
Two people jumped from the car and hid in the darkness behind a home in the 3300 block of Northeast 16 Street. The helicopter video shows deputies with a K9 officer tracking down, handcuffing, and leading the suspects away.
Bean is also charged with fleeing and eluding law enforcement officers, and he’s wanted in Lee County for an alleged robbery by sudden snatching. He is being held without bond in a Broward County Jail. Jamison was jailed on a $1,000 bond, records show.
