On 1/3/17 at approximately 2:41 a.m. officers were in the area of Milkwood Lane and Buckwood Way conducting routine patrol when one of the officers observed a suspicious vehicle traveling with no lights on.   Due to an increase in vehicle burglaries in the area, the officer attempted to conduct an investigative stop on the vehicle.  The vehicle fled the area at a high rate of speed in an attempt to evade the officer.  Additional officers responded to the area to assist in apprehending the fleeing vehicle.  The driver of the suspect vehicle, later identified as Gabriel Dorado, was unable to properly maneuver the vehicle and collided with a parked car.  The three occupants of the vehicle, Mr. Dorado and two 17 year old male juveniles, fled the vehicle on foot.  All three were quickly apprehended and taken into custody.

During the investigation, it was discovered that the vehicle that Mr. Dorado and the two male juveniles were driving in had been stolen earlier in the evening.  Inside the vehicle, officers located numerous items that appeared to have recently been taken in vehicle burglaries.  Mr. Dorado was booked into the Cois Byrd Detention Center and the two male juveniles were booked into Juvenile Hall on vehicle theft related charges.  Officers are in the process of returning the items located in the stolen vehicle to the owners.
