Bivens faces charges of burglary, criminal mischief, carrying concealed firearm and grand theft firearm. Swain faces charges of burglary and criminal mischief.

The suspects were spotted in the backyard of a home at 6840 Southwest 50th Terrace, near South Miami Senior High School. Police said they entered the house through a window.

Authorities say the victim began speaking to them through the alarm system. 

South Miami police and Miami-Dade police chased the suspects as they fled in a Nissan Altima before crashing into a vehicle at Quail Roost Drive near the Turnpike. 

The suspects got out of the car and ran away into a residential area.

A witness said the driver walked away from the scene and tried to blend in with others, but was quickly taken into custody. 

Police set up a perimeter south of Quail Roost Park and North of Southridge Park as they searched for the two passengers. One of the passengers was apprehended. 

Biven and Swain are currently being held at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center.
