Cops: 3 nabbed while breaking into City Island apartment

Police have arrested two men and a woman who they believe to be the culprits of a rash of recent car and home break-ins on City Island.

Investigators say the three suspects were spotted trying to climb up terraces this morning in the condo complex where the woman in custody lives. Complex residents, who suspected the group was at it again, said they began to chase them both on foot and in cars.

Neighbor Alex Velez, whose Jeep was broken into on Thursday, says he hopped into the same car the suspects allegedly burglarized to chase them. Police joined in the pursuit both on the ground and in the air.

Police say the suspects led them on a wild, six-block chase before they were apprehended. An officer who lives in the complex said the suspects fired weapons at police. No one was injured.
