Police say they may have found more people connected to a recent high profile break-in.

Just last week a group of people stole guns from Sling Point Firearms after driving a car through the Lexington gun store.

Yesterday, police said they may have found an adult and juvenile connected to the case. Wednesday morning three more people were taken into custody.

Lexington Police say an anonymous tip led them to a home in the Woodhill area where they found the three teens. One ran, but police quickly caught up with him on a nearby street.

"They're currently going to be taken down to headquarters for further interviews to see if we can shed any light in this matter," says Lt. J.J. Lombardi, with Lexington Police.

Police say they will be questioned about three recent crimes, including the burglary last week when a stolen car was driven into Sling Point Firearms.

"I guess there will be more to follow on that if anything comes to life in those interviews," Lombardi says.

Officers say while the three do not face any charges yet, they will likely be in questioning for much of the day.

Police say they are also questioning the three taken into custody today for the burglary at Trailblazers, which is near Sling Point, and was also broken into on that same night.

Police are also continuing to question an 18-year-old and another juvenile arrested Tuesday for two attempted robberies. They have said those two may also be connected to the Sling Point break-in.
