INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Three teenagers are in custody following an investigation spanning several weeks of packages that went missing from porches on the city’s northwest side.

Authorities quickly identified the suspects’ vehicle after investigating the first couple of thefts.

Undercover officers apprehended the suspects on Friday after witnessing the suspects enter an Avon neighborhood and attempt another theft from a front porch.

19-year-old Christopher Brubaker, 18-year-old Ashley White and an unnamed 17-year-old juvenile were all taken into custody.

A 9-month-old baby and a sixth grader were also in the car at the time of the arrest.

All three suspects have been booked into the Hendricks County Jail.
