Three suspects were arrested Monday in relation to a breaking and entering call near Kelly Street in Conover.
After breaking into a residence around 3:30 p.m., Carl Robinson and two unidentified suspects fled toward Tri-City Baptist Church on Highway 16 North.
When the suspects wrecked their car near the church, Robinson fled the scene while another male and female suspects were taken into custody.
The names of the other suspects weren't released as of press time Monday.
"They had a perimeter set up around the Tri-City church area when a female officer spotted (Robinson)," said Claremont Police Chief Gerald Tolbert.
After setting a perimeter and using a K-9 unit, authorities were then able to locate and arrest Robinson.
The search lasted about two hours, said Catawba County Sheriff Coy Reid.
There were multiple breaking and entering calls in the Conover area Monday, but authorities are still investigating whether they are related, Reid said.
