UPDATE: Police Searching for Robbery Suspects Near Fort Lauderdale High School

A Fort Lauderdale Police Officer on the scene said officers were using helicopters and K9 units to search for robbery suspects on the loose near Fort Lauderdale High School. Police cars have blocked off the area between Andrews and NE 4th Avenue, just north of Sunrise. There are at least two police helicopters in the air, one from Broward Sheriff's Office and one from the Fort Lauderdale Police Department. There are dozens of squad cars and uniformed officers at the scene.

UPDATE: I just talked to Frank Sousa, spokesperson for the Fort Lauderdale Police Department, and he said police were searching for several suspects in a burglary that took place in another part of town. He said police chased the suspects the area around Andrews and Sunrise and used dogs and helicopters to search the neighborhood. He said police now have all of the suspects in custody.
