Burglary suspects caught after running to police department | News
ROSWELL, Ga. -- Usually, police have to chase suspects when they run from a crime scene. In Roswell, burglary suspects ran to the police department.
Roswell Police spokesperson Lisa Holland said an officer on patrol heard an alarm coming from the Wender and Roberts Drug Store on Atlanta Street. The officer saw three men wearing gloves and masks running away from the business. He was able to arrest one of the men, but the two others ran away. Other officers set up a perimeter and called in a K-9 named Saar.
Saar's search didn't take long. The dog tracked the suspects to the back gate of the Roswell Police Department. Police say the two suspects had burglary tools and stolen prescription drugs on them.
"They made it easy for us to transport them to our jail, just a few feet away!" they posted on their Facebook page.
Jonathon Johnson, Christian Moncrieff, and Tyree Richbow were arrested and charged with burglary.
