SUFFOLK, Va. – Suffolk Police are investigating an attempted residential break-in on Tuesday afternoon.

Suspects were seen in the area of the 2400 block of Holland Road/Route 58 around 3 p.m.

A witness contacted police to report that four black males were seen attempting to break into a residence on Quince Road.

The subjects fled from the area in a Chevrolet Impala and were involved in an accident in the 2100 block of Holland Road at 3:29 p.m.

The accident only involved their car and they continued driving.

They then fled from the vehicle towards the wood line in the area of the 2400 block of Holland Road/Route 58. The Ace Hardware Redistribution Center was on lock down temporarily because witnesses said they saw the subjects in the area.

Three of the involved individuals were apprehended and are now in custody. Police are continuing to search the area for the fourth subject who was last seen in the area of the 3300 block of Holland Road wearing light colored shorts and no shirt.

If anyone sees this individual, police say not to approach them but contact Suffolk Police by calling 911.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
