Three suspected burglars arrested following chase

Three suspected burglars could face even more charges, after they led local law enforcement on a chase through two counties.  Authorities tell NewsChannel 11 speeds exceeded 130 mph.

Law enforcement converged on the Lubbock-Lynn County line around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.  After about 10 minutes, the chase came to an end on U.S. Highway 87 in south Lubbock County. That's where sheriff's deputies made the arrests.

Lubbock County Sheriff's Investigators tell us these suspects could be linked to the series of burglaries in Lubbock, Hockley, Hale and now Lynn counties where nearly 35 firearms have been taken.  Tuesday night, investigators continued to question the suspects in their downtown offices.

"These individuals had been targeting residences in broad daylight where they believed the residences were not occupied at the time. This particular case, there was somebody in the house," said Chief Deputy Paul Scarborough of Lubbock County Sheriff's Office.

That victim called authorities at 1:28 p.m. Tuesday.  Law enforcement from nine agencies launched into action, some in the chase, others blocked possible get-away routes.  The suspects dodged a set of tire spikes, and in doing so, ended up in the path of sheriff's deputies who were able to stop the car and make the arrest.

Authorities have not released the suspect's names pending charges. We do know they're three men in their early to mid-20's.  Investigators tell us they expect to file charges by Wednesday.
