SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Police in Santa Fe have arrested three men suspected of breaking into a woman's home while she was inside.
Authorities say 31-year-old Fernando Fonsesca, 28-year-old Armando Gutierrez and 19-year-old Michael Martinez are all facing charges ranging from burglary to probation violation.
Police say a 62-year-old woman reported a break-in at her home Thursday afternoon after she saw one man dart past her bedroom.
Police say she was then able to get a license plate number as well as a description of the suspects.
Officers spotted the vehicle, a Ford Expedition, about 15 minutes later and intercepted it.
Police say they brought the victim to the scene and she identified two of the three men.
A search of the vehicle turned up burglary tools and drug paraphernalia.
Police believe the suspects got in through an unlocked door.
