(Miami-Dade County, FL) --
The Miami-Dade Police Department continues to investigate an incident involving an escaped prisoner that was captured after a brief police pursuit. Investigators say that the Miami-Dade Police Department, Narcotics Bureau received information that the subject, Andy Ulysse, who was wanted out of the State of Georgia for numerous charges was in Miami-Dade County and was attempting to flee the country. Early this morning, narcotics detectives were able to apprehend Andy Ulysse in Northeast Miami-Dade. Once his identification was confirmed, a records check revealed two open warrants from Georgia. The first warrant was for Armed Robbery, Burglary, Home Invasion, Kidnapping and Possession of a Firearm during the commission of a felony. The second warrants was for Armed Robbery, False Imprisonment and Theft by taking a motor vehicle.
Once Ulysse was taken into custody, he was placed in a marked police vehicle to be transported to Turner Gilford Knight (TGK) Corrections and Rehabilitation Center. On the way to TGK, in the area of northbound State Road 826, just before N.W. 36 Street, Ulysse began to kick the rear passenger door window open and jump out of the police vehicle. He fled the area by jumping off a 15-foot embankment. A perimeter was established and a B.O.L.O. (be on the lookout) was transmitted over the radio with his description. Ulysse jumped in a vehicle that was unattended and fled the area. Moments later, uniform officers spotted the vehicle traveling westbound on West Flagler Street. The units attempted to stop the vehicle but Ulysse refused and continued to flee westbound. He then traveled northbound on N.W. 97 Avenue where he attempted to strike multiple police vehicles and also side swiped a civilian vehicle but the driver was not injured. Ulysse continued northbound and came to a stop at a parking lot located at N.W. 41 Street & N.W. 97 Avenue where he was subsequently taken into custody without further incident. No one was injured during the incident.
