3 arrested in police chase, may be Hard Rock robbers

TAMPA, Florida -- After a short chase and an extensive search, the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office arrested three men who may be connected to the Seminole Hard Rock robbery from Jan. 2.

While on duty, a Pinellas County Sheriff's deputy noticed a 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt traveling eastbound on Ulmerton Road at Tall Pines Drive that matched the description of a vehicle witnesses described during the armed robbery.

When the deputy attempted to stop the vehicle it took off resulting in a brief chase that ended at Tall Pines Drive and Whispering Drive in Largo. The three suspects abandoned the car and fled on foot.

The Sheriff's Office K9 Unit, Flight Section, and undercover detectives responded to the scene to assist patrol deputies with the search. Several hours later, after an extensive search, deputies found the suspects inside an apartment located at 3001 Pine Dr., Apt. 47, in Largo.
