CHICAGO (CBS)-- Suspects wanted in burglaries in suburban Elmhurst were taken into custody by Chicago police early Friday morning. 

Around 3:30 a.m., Elmhurst police responded to calls of at least five vehicle burglaries between North Avenue and Lake Street. 

About 30 minutes later, an officer on patrol spotted the suspect's vehicle, a white Ford Fusion, and attempted to stop it. The suspect drove off, and officers stopped their pursuit "for safety reasons."

Chicago police later located the car at 95th and Jeffrey streets and tried to stop it. The suspect hit a fire hydrant while trying to drive off. 

Three suspects ran from the car and were taken into custody.
