After a chase, Anne Arundel County Police charged three men they say took about $25,000 in cash and jewelry from homes in Annapolis and Davidsonville.
At 12:38 p.m. on Tuesday, police were called to the 1600 block of Dunstable Green in Annapolis, for report of a burglary, according to a release. While responding to the home, officers learned that the suspects were in a white Ford Expedition, which was seen traveling north on I-97 near Route 32 a short time later.
Officers followed the vehicle as it exited I-97 onto Route 32 and attempted to conduct a traffic stop as the car was approaching the exit for Telegraph Road. Police said while they were conducting the stop, the car came to an abrupt halt and two passengers ran from the vehicle into a nearby wooded area.
Police pursued the suspects into the woods, and after a brief chase, both suspects who fled the vehicle were taken into custody. The driver, who had remained in the vehicle, was also arrested.
After an investigation, police found jewelry and money inside the vehicle that was positively identified as belonging to the residents on Dunstable Green, according to a release. Police also recovered additional jewelry that was reported stolen earlier in the day during a burglary that occurred in the 1000 block of Double Gate Road in Davidsonville.
Police said about $25,000 in property was recovered from the vehicle.
The following suspects were arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree burglary, two counts of fourth-degree burglary, two counts of destruction to property over $500 and two counts of theft over $10,000 to under $100,000.
