BREAKING: Teenager Arrested After Bailing Out of Stolen Vehicle Near Disney World
We reported yesterday about a strong police presence behind the Magic Kingdom with blocked off roads and what appeared to be deputies looking for an armed suspect. We just got reports from WFTV of a teenager being arrested last night in relation to that issue.
The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office has revealed the suspect apprehended in the manhunt from Wednesday evening. Andy Mendez, 18, was caught bailing out of a car that was stolen from Orange County.
An Osceola County spokesperson has also confirmed that Mendez is the same teenager arrested from a car chase that happened 2 weeks ago. He and 5 other suspects were shooting from a black Dodge Charger in Kissimmee. When the police tried to pull them over, they sped off while the suspects allegedly threw two assault rifles and a shotgun out of the windows.
Mendez, as well as the other 4, were arrested but later granted bond.
Deputies are still looking for the 2 other suspects that were in the car with him yesterday.
