PORTAGE (WKZO) -- Three suspects have been arrested in Portage following numerous burglaries.  Around 3:30 a.m. Thursday, a Portage Public Safety officer spotted a suspicious vehicle in the Moorsbridge neighborhood.

A driver dropped off two suspects in the neighborhood, and when the vehicle was stopped, plenty of stolen items were found ranging from GPS units and golf clubs to a laptop computer and more.  A K-9 unit from the Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Department was called in to track the two suspects on foot, but was unable to find them.

A couple of hours later around 5:30 a.m., they were found entering the Meijer store on Shaver Road.  They told police they'd driven up from Mishawaka, Indiana and admitted they had been breaking into several vehicles.

All three suspects were arrested and taken to the Kalamazoo County Jail.
