Pursuit results in arrests of two men in connection with auto burglaries in Hillsborough

Two South Florida men who broke into numerous cars in Hillsborough County were arrested on Saturday after a meandering two-county chase, the Hillsborough Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies arrested the driver, Lucious Felder, 22, and passenger Terry Joseph, 25. Both were charged with several auto burglaries. A woman who was also with the men escaped during the chase after she bailed out of the car.

The first three car burglaries occurred Saturday at Camp YMCA in Brandon. The trio, deputies said, then used some of the credit cards obtained from the burglaries at a Mobil gas station and a Taco Bell.

Then they drove to Lithia Springs Park and burglarized another car, deputies said.

Next up was the FishHawk Sports Complex, also in Lithia, for two more auto break-ins, deputies said. But a witness spotted the trio and deputies were called.

Deputies tracked the car with a sheriff's helicopter in Hillsborough and Pasco counties before the men were stopped and arrested with the help of "Stopsticks," which blew out one of the car's tires, deputies said.
