Police caught three suspected burglars who slammed a car into a Verizon Wireless store in east Houston early this morning.

It happened around 3am on the East Freeway and Normandy. HPD officers were on patrol and saw a vehicle back into the store. Four male suspects fled, leaving a stolen PT Cruiser inside.

At least one suspect was taken into custody behind the store. The other three fled, jumping over a fence into a truck yard. Two of those suspects were apprehended by a K-9 unit. One suspect remains at large.

Police say the suspects weren't able to get away with any merchandise but they did leave behind some costly damages at the store.
