Florida gang members arrested in NLR

Cinel Geffrard

Police say two members of the Florida Felony Lane Gang were arrested Monday in North Little Rock after a police pursuit.

According to police, just before 3 p.m. Monday, a witness saw the two suspects - later identified as Everol Blake and Cinel Geffrard, both 30 years old from Fort Lauderdale - breaking into vehicles at Wild River Country and called 911.

When officers arrived, the suspects fled the scene and led police on a short vehicle pursuit. The chase ended when the suspects crashed into a pole on the property of the Veterans Administration.

Geffrard first gave detectives a fictitious name, but he was quickly identified through a facial recognition program used by the Polk County Sheriff's Department in Florida.

Both suspects are being held without bond at the Pulaski County Detention Facility.
