Burglary suspects surrender after hourslong standoff in Wheat Ridge

WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. -- A shelter-in-place order was issued Wednesday morning after two burglary suspects barricaded inside a home, the Wheat Ridge Police Department said.

The situation started after 10 a.m. in the 4300 block of Newland Street, east of Wadsworth Boulevard.

Police said the burglary suspects from Westminster barricaded inside a home after officers from the Westminster Police Department tried contacting them.

A SWAT team was called out and nearby residents were told to shelter in place.

The situation ended later with three suspects in custody.

Police said it started with a burglary in Westminster in which the suspects are accused  of stealing weapons and ammunition from a family's gun safe.

Police found the suspects six miles away and spent hours negotiating with them to come out of the house.

Sean Altman, Skyler Berns and Rebel Bonser are facing burglary charges.
