INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Two 27-year-old men now face preliminary charges of burglary and theft after detectives watching them in a surveillance operation caught them in the act, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said Monday. 

The surveillance was under way just before 12:30 p.m. Friday in an apartment complex in the 4600 block of Abington Way. That’s east of the Georgetown Road overpass for Interstate 65 on the northwest side. 

An IMPD news release said police saw the suspects leave in a vehicle with property from the apartment. Officers got behind them on Georgetown Road and later stopped the vehicle. While getting into position for a felony stop, the suspect sped away and led the officers on a short pursuit into another apartment complex. The chase ended safely, IMPD said. 

Travis Jones was arrested on suspicion of theft, burglary and resisting law enforcement. Jonte Rogers arrested on suspicion of theft and burglary. Both suspects remained in the Marion County Jail on Monday afternoon.

The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office will decide whether to charge the suspects.
