Three arrested in home invasion
THREE RIVERS — Three suspects were arrested in a home invasion on South Constantine Street in Three Rivers Sunday.
According to the Three Rivers Police Department, officers were called out to a home invasion in progress, where they located multiple victims that had been threatened with a gun, bat and large knife. The victims said the three suspects had broken into their home and engaged the residents in a confrontation. The residents were able to lure the suspects, who they did not know, outside and then secure the house.
K9 Django reportedly tracked the suspects to a home in the neighborhood, where a male suspect was found hiding inside a van. The man was arrested and evidence was located near him.
Two additional suspects were then identified and believed to be in the house. Officers executed a search warrant on the house, where they arrested the two remaining suspects and located additional evidence.
The suspects were lodged in jail without bond on charges including felonious assault with a gun and first degree home invasion.
TRPD was assisted by the St. Joseph County Sheriff’s Department and Michigan State Police.
