High-Speed Chase Ends in Arrest of Three Youths, Machine Gun Discovery Shocks Authorities

On Monday evening, an 18-year-old and two underage individuals were apprehended by Tallahassee Police after attempting to flee by crashing into a police car.

Jamouri Branch, 18, was taken into custody for having a machine gun, evading law enforcement, and driving without a license.

The two minors were detained for charges related to possessing a firearm while being delinquent and violating probation for stealing a firearm.

As per a notice from TPD on social media, officers spotted a familiar suspect driving with a suspended license on West Tharpe Street.

“Because the suspect was known to attempt to flee from law enforcement during previous traffic stops, detectives strategically pinned the vehicle while conducting the stop,” TPD stated.

“During this time, the driver, Jamouri Branch, actively attempted to escape by accelerating the vehicle and striking a patrol car.”

Marijuana, two loaded weapons (one of which was reported stolen), and a Glock Switch were discovered during the search of the vehicle by the police officers. The Glock Switch is “a device that transitions a semi-automatic firearm into a fully automatic firearm,” according to the social media post.
