Criminal investigation underway at Southwest Ranches


SOUTHWEST RANCHES, FL. – Officials from the Davie Police Criminal Investigation Division were in the Southwest Ranches area trying to find evidence related to an ongoing investigation, authorities confirmed Thursday.

Around noon, the police also began to reopen the roadway to traffic.

Davie Police said no further details about the investigation and the type of evidence they were looking for would be released at this time so as not to compromise the integrity of the investigation.

A d

Police said updates would be provided, as appropriate, by a police department spokesperson.

Thursday afternoon, the police had cleared the area.
