On 04/16/12 just before 1:00 am SPD was called to the area of 8400 E. Lewis in reference to two vehicles that were driving in the neighborhood and the nearby alleys without their headlights on. The vehicles were described as a Jeep Cherokee and a Ford pickup. The caller stated that the vehicles stopped in front of a home in the 8400 block of E. Lewis but were gone by the time officers arrived. The home where the vehicles were parked in front of had signs of being burglarized.
A short time later officers found the Jeep which was unoccupied, about a block away, so they conducted a surveillance waiting for the suspects to return. When the suspects returned in the Ford pickup truck, one of the suspects got out of the truck and into the Jeep. At this time officers contained both vehicles and apprehended three suspects between the two vehicles. The homeowner arrived and identified his property from within the vehicles.
All three were booked on Burglary charges.
