Police said they responded at 9 a.m. Thursday to a call about suspicious activity in a wooded area around the 1900 block of Nora. There, they said, three suspects were attempting to move a vehicle.

With officers’ arrival, the three fled on foot; two were caught and taken to the Beaumont police station. The vehicle was identified as the one taken in the robbery. Other items taken from the Pine Street residence were found in the home of a suspect.

Additional arrests were expected, police said.
