A man who robbed a bank in Florida led police on a three-county chase before tossing cash at police officers during a standoff.

The man -armed with a machete- walked into a TD Bank in Delray Beach around 10:30 a.m. and demanded money from the workers.

After receiving the cash, he took off in an SUV on I-95 north with police officers in pursuit. He was able to lose Delray Beach police officers in Boynton Beach.

He then traveled south through Broward County and into Miami-Dade County, where he led Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies and Miami-Dade police picked up the pursuit, which led to a high-speed chase.

The robber ended up in a parking lot of a church in Miami Gardens, where officers in marked and unmarked law enforcement cruisers were able to pin his vehicle.

The man sat in his car for at least ten minutes, under the watch of armed officers, before he started tossing the cash out of his vehicle’s window, according to NBC.

He was eventually detained by Miami-Dade police after opening his car door and surrendering around 12 PM.

His identity has yet to be released.
