Howard County police arrested three men -- two of them wanted for burglary -- after a Friday morning chase involving a police dog and a helicopter, shortly after police reported seeing the three men hauling goods from an Elkridge home.
Police said detectives saw three men riding in a stolen car about 10:30 a.m. Friday and followed them to a driveway in the 6000 block of Ducketts Lane.
Police said the men went into the home, and the detectives radioed other officers. When the men saw the police, they got into the vehicle and fled to nearby Bauman Drive, where they got out and ran, police said.
Police said one man was caught near the car. With the help of a police K-9 unit and a state police helicopter, police located and arrested two men in the woods.
Police said they found property stolen from the home inside the stolen car. Detectives are still investigating.
Wayne Sylvester Hebron, Larry Darnell Hebron and Avery Lee Harding, none of them with fixed addresses, were held in police custody and questioned Friday afternoon.
The three men were charged with breaking and entering, auto theft and resisting arrest and were held at the Howard County Detention Center. Wayne Hebron's bond is $125,000; Larry Hebron's is $150,000 and Mr. Harding's is $50,000.
Wayne and Larry Hebron were named in outstanding warrants involving a July 11 burglary of a home in the 1400 block of Marriottsville Road in Marriottsville and a January burglary in the 9700 block of Covered Wagon Drive in North Laurel, police said.
