Three arrested after car burglary
Police arrested three people on multiple charges and are looking for another following an auto burglary they spotted Sunday. About 8:25 a.m., officers saw a group of men burglarizing a car behind a duplex near N 49th Street and E 26th Avenue, said Lt. Brian Gant. The men ran and police thought one ran into the duplex, but a team searched and found nobody. Police later arrested three: Daniel Garcia, 19, was charged on an arrest warrant with home invasion robbery; Anthony Hance, 21, was charged with auto burglary, grand theft, burglary, resisting an officer without violence and probation violation; and Devin Anis, 20, was charged with grand theft auto, auto burglary and probation violation. A fourth man was detained but later released, Gant said. Investigators were following leads to identify a fifth man.
