Four people were arrested after breaking into a home Friday in Crestwood, police said.
Police received a call of a burglary about 2:20 p.m. at a home in the 5000 block of West 137th Street, according to Crestwood police. Upon arriving, officers discovered that four suspects fled the home and ran east.
One suspect was caught and a perimeter and search were issued for the remaining three suspects, police said. Several witnesses saw the suspects running from the area and called police, which led to two of the suspects being apprehended.
Eugene White, 19, of the 7200 block of Bennett Avenue, and Tabius A. White, 17, of the 5900 block of South Calumet Avenue, were charged with residential burglary and unlawful possession of a stolen vehicle, police said. A 14-year-old boy from Chicago was charged with residential burglary. A fourth suspect was not apprehended but has been identified and faces criminal charges, police said.
The vehicle the suspects used was stolen from Chicago’s Hyde Park community earlier Friday, police said.
K-9 units from Oak Lawn, Countryside, Palos Hills and Alsip, police units from Palos Heights, Midlothian and Robbins and a helicopter from the Cook County sheriff’s police assisted with the search, Crestwood police said. Police notified local residents by using the Code Red Emergency Mass Notification System through Southwest Central Dispatch.
