Burglary suspects taken into custody after police chase

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Two juveniles and an 18-year-old were taken into custody on Monday after a burglary that prompted a police chase.

A home in the 7400 block of Lions Head Drive was burglarized Monday morning. Neighbors noticed and called 911, giving a description of the vehicle and its license place. The vehicle had been stolen around 7 a.m. Monday from the 1700 block of Century Way.

An officer tracked down the vehicle and tried to pull it over, but the driver didn’t stop. A short police chase ensued before the vehicle crashed near Kessler and Binford boulevards.

The stolen items were recovered.

Outside Lions Head Drive iron gates guard the grounds. Only residents and welcomed guests are allowed to past the gates.

Residents believe the suspects in the burglary may have scaled the fence to commit the crimes.

According to John and Mimi Stillwell, the condominiums have broken into five times in the past year.

“I’m very happy they’ve been caught,” said Mimi Stillwell.

Police have not determined if the suspects are connected to any other crimes. The suspects have not been identified.

Residents along Lions Head Drive were not surprised that neighbors called into police with the critical tips.

“That’s great who else is going to do it,” said John Stillwell.
