Man in custody after multi-county police chase that shut down northbound I-95 for hours

All northbound lanes of Interstate 95 near Hillsboro Boulevard opened up to traffic after a police pursuit that originated in Miami-Dade County came to an end there.

The northbound lanes had been closed for about two hours before the single lane opened before 5 p.m. Tuesday. The rest of the lanes were flowing by 6:30 p.m.

A Toyota Corolla that matched the description of a vehicle used in a Miami-area robbery on April 7 led Miami-Dade Police on the chase, said Detective Lee Cowart, a spokesman for the Miami-Dade Police Department.

“They’re investigating why they fled, the violations, if any, that occurred during the fleeing, and the initial robbery that occurred on April 7,” Cowart said.
