Early in the morning on Thursday, three burglary suspects fled from police at Pueblo Self Storage in Colorado. An officer patrolling the area at 2:24 a.m. saw three people inside the fence at the facility, but all ran when they saw the officer and were never caught. An inspection of the property revealed six units had been broken into and the suspects had attempted to break into a seventh. Police found burglary tools such as bolt-cutters, screwdrivers and a flashlight at the scene.
Damage was estimated at $2,000, but it was unknown if anything had been stolen from the opened units.
Police questioned the owners of a vehicle that was parked nearby with keys in the ignition. The owners were not in the car, and they claimed not to know how the vehicle ended up near the storage facility.
The investigation is ongoing.
