FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
April 27, 2017
 
            (Fishers, Indiana) – Fishers police arrest two burglary suspects targeting two neighborhoods near 106th Street and Cumberland Road.
 
            During the early morning hours of Monday April 24th Fishers police officers responded to the 11100 block of Timberview Drive to investigate a residential alarm. As officers approached they observed two men near the rear of this residence. Officers identified themselves and both suspects ran. After a short foot pursuit both men were captured and detained. During an extensive search of the area, officers located a juvenile asleep in a vehicle that was later determined to belong to one of the suspects. Three suspects were transported to the Fishers Police Department.
 
            As the investigation continued, officers learned the suspects burglarized another home in the same neighborhood and stole property from several cars in a nearby neighborhood. Officers were able to recover several stolen items and return them to their rightful owners. The two adult suspects were transported to the Hamilton County Jail and the juvenile suspect was transported to the Marion County Juvenile Detention Center for an outstanding pick-up order from Marion County.
 
This investigation is ongoing. At least one new victim has come forth, there may be more. If you have additional information regarding these suspects or these criminal acts please call Detective Sergeant David Flynn at 317-595-3300.
