Three burglary suspects jailed after search near Mt. SAC

WALNUT — Sheriff’s deputies arrested three burglary suspects Wednesday after a brief chase and manhunt near Mt. San Antonio College, authorities said.
The suspects’ names were not released due to an ongoing investigation by detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Major Crimes Bureau, sheriff’s Lt. John Saleeby said. They were initially described as Los Angeles-area men in their early 20s.
Deputies responded about 11:30 a.m. to a report of a break-in at a home in the 19000 block of Country Hollow Drive and spotted the suspects’ vehicle in the area, the lieutenant said.
Officials initially followed behind the car, then began a pursuit when it failed to pull over, Saleeby said.
The chase led to a parking lot of nearby Mt. SAC, where the driver slowed down to allow his two passengers to exit the car and continue fleeing on foot, Saleeby said. The driver then abandoned the car in a nearby neighborhood before also taking flight on foot.
Deputies set up a search perimeter and quickly located the three suspects, officials said. Items believed to have been stolen from the home on Country Hollow Drive were recovered.
Major Crimes Bureau detectives were looking into the possibility the men may be involved in other burglaries.
