San Marino police arrested three 18-year-old men in connection with a suspected home burglary Saturday morning, with one leading police on a short chase in a BMW before crashing into a wall.
Gary Smith, Justin Armstrong and Malik Shamsiddeenabney, all of Los Angeles, were arrested after the chase and a short search of the area around the 2700 block of Doresta Road, police said in a statement.
Police initially responded to the area at around 10:39 a.m. after someone called reporting a burglary in progress. The caller gave a description of the suspects to police, who began a search of the area.
The officers saw a silver BMW SUV parked nearby with one person in the driver’s seat. They approached the vehicle and tried to contact the driver, but he fled, according to police.
During the pursuit, the driver crashed into the wall near the intersection of El Molino Avenue and Fluer Drive.
Police didn’t say whether the driver was injured in the crash. They also didn’t identify which of the teenagers was the driver.
It’s not clear if anything was taken from the home during the burglary.
All three suspects were arrested and were being held in the Alhambra Jail.
