Police arrested four men suspected of burglary Tuesday after the men led officers on a brief car chase and then fled on foot into a West Glendale neighborhood, putting the area on lockdown for several hours.
Officers from the Special Enforcement Detail spotted the men running out of a home and getting into a vehicle just after 11:40 a.m. in the 1200 block of North Everett Street in the Rossmoyne district. The driver refused to pull over, prompting a brief car chase on the Ventura (134) Freeway that ended at the dead end of Circle Seven Drive.
The burglaries in the area where the men first were seen had reportedly resulted in stolen guns, so the men were considered armed and dangerous, prompting ABC7 television studios and the nearby Walt Disney Co. campus to lock down. Police set up a perimeter and searched the neighborhood.
Police dogs found three of the men about 2:05 p.m. hiding inside a home garage on Cosmic Way. No one was home at the time, Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said. Their identities were not immediately released Tuesday.
