Burglary Suspects Fled to NJ, Arrested for Breaking Into Gun Store in Pennsylvania



By: Richard L. Smith 

Police in PA took three suspects into custody in NJ and charged them with burglarizing a gun store in Pennsylvania overnight. 

Authorities in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, were dispatched to 1872 East Old Lincoln Highway to investigate reports of a burglary in progress around 3 a.m. 

Units patrolling the area located an occupied vehicle that registration came back stolen from Philadelphia. 

Officers attempted to pull the car over, but the driver refused and led cops on a high-speed pursuit that ended in a crash at the Carteret Apartments in Trenton. 

Police say three suspects bailed from the car and ran from officers but were eventually captured in the Mercer County neighborhood. 

A weapon was recovered from the vehicle, but no severe injuries were reported. Police have not said if any guns were taken from the store during the burglary. 

Langhorne Police will handle the investigation.
