Officer’s quick action helps nab two robbery suspects

Officer’s quick action helps nab two robbery suspectsWhen Kendall District Police Officer Jean Pompee heard a vehicle crash on Kendall Drive while on patrol, Sept. 28, he gave chase to three male occupants fleeing from the accident on the SW 88th Street median. Apprehending one of the three in the Denny’s restaurant parking lot, his quick action led to the arrest of a second escapee, one of a trio who had earlier committed an armed robbery in Miami-Dade’s North District and were fleeing from a Florida Highway Patrol net. Police recovered a semi-automatic pistol and 9mm Uzi from the vehicle — both used in the robbery. At the Oct. 30 Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) meeting, CAC chair Barry White (left) together with Maj. Christopher Carothers honored Officer Pompee (center) for his alertness as September Officer of the Month in Kendall District.
