EAST COLUMBUS — A trio is in custody after police say they broke into a young woman’s apartment.
It happened just after 8:30 AM Thursday at the Walnut Glen Apartments near Refugee Road.
Investigators say a man and two women, one of them pregnant, broke into an acquaintance’s apartment while she was at work. A neighbor who heard the break-in called 911.
Police said the three suspects split and tried to run from the scene, but were quickly arrested.
"I heard the big boom clash. That's when I went out there,” Ashley Garcia said, neighbor. “Me and a few neighbors went outside and that's when we saw --and when I walked down, I noticed it was her apartment."
The suspects’ names have not been released at this time. They are expected to be formally charged in court Friday morning.
