Three burglary suspects are in custody after deputies say their getaway vehicle ran out of gas.

Kassandra Beltran, 17, Raymond Paige, 19, and Kolby Fleeds, 20, were arrested after allegedly kicking in the door and burglarizing two homes on Tuesday.

According to the Harris County Sheriff's Office, the first break-in happened around 9am at an apartment complex in the 900 block of Ashland in Channelview. After kicking in the door, the suspects were confronted by a resident inside. Deputies say they managed to grab a television set before fleeing in a red Jeep.

About a half hour later, deputies say the trio kicked in a door at a home in the 800 block of Doncrest. They reportedly told the homeowner to get in the closet as they burglarized the home.

As deputies were taking a statement from the homeowner in the second case, another deputy found the suspects nearby. They had apparently run out of gas.

All three suspects were arrested. It was later discovered that the victim in the second burglary is Beltran's aunt.
