Tampa police helicopter chase ends with four burglary suspects in custody

TAMPA — Police arrested four burglary suspects after a helicopter chase Wednesday afternoon.

About 1:28 p.m., police said a woman called 911 when she saw people breaking into a neighbor's house.

Police, already patrolling the area, arrived less than a minute later and spotted a man in 2010 red Ford Mustang reported stolen from Tampa International Airport, authorities said.

Police identified Sergio Egido as the getaway driver for three other men, Raudel Deltoro, 17, Juan Borrejo, 39, and Ariel Caballero, 17.

Egido was taken into custody while the three other men took off in different directions. A helicopter soon joined the search.

The men were spotted running through woods near the scene, police said.
