At about 2:30 p.m. Monday, the three suspects broke into an off-duty police officer’s cruiser near Georgia Avenue and Hildarose Drive in Forest Glen.

The officer discovered the men breaking into his car, who then fled in a maroon minivan that had been reported stolen Sunday. They were then involved in a hit-and-run accident a short distance away on Seminary Road.

The suspects then abandoned the minivan in the driveway of a home on Brookville Road. Shortly thereafter, police apprehended the men near Third Avenue and Glen Ross Road in Silver Spring.
