Citrus Heights Police arrested three men after a two-hour manhunt in a residential neighborhood on Thursday.

Police received a call at about 10:30 a.m. reporting a suspicious vehicle parked in a residential neighborhood of Citrus Heights, said Citrus Heights Police Officer Mike Wells. The vehicle matched a description of one previously used in a commercial robbery on Greenback Lane, Wells said.

Two suspects fled on foot when officers approached the vehicle, Wells said. Police detained the remaining suspect.

Citrus Heights Police set up a roughly five-block perimeter encompassing near the corner of Pitalo Way and Wachtel Way, Wells said. Police advised residents to stay inside their homes as officers performed canine searches of houses and back yards.

Police found and detained one suspect at about 12:20 p.m. and the other about 25 minutes later. Both suspects were inside the perimeter when police found them, Wells said.

No one was injured during the pursuit, Wells said.
