Police in Beaumont arrested three juveniles for auto burglaries Aug. 10 after a police K-9 tracked the young suspects to a garage, Officer Haley Morrow reports.

According to Morrow, officers responded to 1450 N. Major Dr. at about 3:30 a.m. in reference to a possible auto burglary in progress. While en route, the complainant advised that multiple juveniles had fled the scene in a red Dodge Charger, allegedly a stolen car.

Responding officers located the vehicle in the area of Calder and Phelan. The vehicle fled and ran into a ditch near Pinchback and Wall Street. Multiple subjects fled from the vehicle. K-9 Joris and his handler arrived on-scene and assisted patrol officers in locating three of the suspects who were hiding in a garage in the 300 block of Pinchback.

The juveniles were transported to the Minnie Rogers Juvenile Detention Center where they were charged with evading arrest/detention and criminal trespass. The suspects are believed to have been involved in multiple auto burglaries, auto thefts and other crimes for which charges are pending, according to police.
