Suspected car thief arrested in Palm Beach County after slow-speed chase

SUBURBAN LAKE WORTH, FL (WFLX) - One person is in custody after a vehicle was stolen from a residence in Boca Raton early Monday morning, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

The owner of the vehicle called police dispatch with the description of the vehicle. This prompted law enforcement to be on the lookout for the vehicle.

PBSO deputies then noticed the vehicle at Glades Road and the Florida Turnpike. They followed the vehicle at a safe distance onto Interstate 95.

The driver got off I-95 and deputies continued to pursue the driver.

The vehicle finally turned on Vermont Avenue in suburban Lake Worth where deputies stopped the driver and arrested him just before 7 a.m.

The suspect's name has not been released.
