Police arrest teen involved in carjacking
HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (WSVN) -- A neighborhood was left on edge for hours after a carjacking suspect went on the run and hid out in a house.
Broward Sheriff's Office SWAT Team caught 16-year-old Scott Burleigh who was wanted in connection to a car-jacking on April 7 near the 2400 block of Pembroke Road in Hollywood.
Burleigh reportedly stole a Fort Lauderdale Parking Enforcement Officer's personal vehicle along with her law enforcement radio.
Police were able to identify Burleigh and another suspect involved in the carjacking, Travante Simms, who was killed in a shootout last Friday in Miramar.
Police said when they spotted Burleigh Tuesday afternoon, he took off running and barricaded himself in the attic of a home. Burleigh refused to come out of the house, so SWAT was called out to the scene.
Officials deployed gas and used a flash bang to distract Burleigh who then came out peacefully.
