Police are seeking three men they identified as suspects of an Ottawa burglary on the 1200 block of Ontario Street last week that was caught on video and shared on Facebook.
Arrest warrants were issued Friday for Michael G. Thompson, 24; Wesley T. Brewer, 19; and Xavier A. Bennett, 21, all of Ottawa. They are charged with residential burglary.
The suspects have not been located as of Tuesday morning. Anyone with information to the current location of any of the suspects should call Ottawa Police Department at 815-433-2131.
Ottawa Police Detective Sgt. Kyle Booras said physical evidence was located at the scene and collected by police. Police developed the three suspects with further investigation.
Ottawa police responded at 5:20 a.m. Sept. 16 to the 1200 block of Ontario Street for a report of a burglary in progress.
Police arrived and determined the suspects had already fled the area. They began to investigate and reviewed the homeowner's security camera footage, which had been shared on Facebook. The footage appeared to capture most of the incident and three subjects could be see with their faces partially covered with clothing, Booras said.
The incident is believed to be an isolated incident and it is not believed that a danger to the public exists, Booras said.
