Deputies with the Jefferson County sheriff's department arrested three people Saturday in connection with a burglary in the 2300 block of Deputy Pike.
Officers received the burglary report at 5:49 a.m. While responding to the scene, Deputy Josh Cochran passed a red Jeep speeding along State Road 7 that matched the description of a vehicle seen fleeing the scene, Sheriff John Wallace said.
With assistance from the Madison Police Department, the Jeep was located at the intersection of East and Fourth streets, police said. The three people in the vehicle were identified as Adam Foster, 19, of Madison, a 17-year-old male juvenile of Madison and a 12-year-old female juvenile from Madison. Wallace said the 12-year-old had been reported missing to the police department earlier in the day.
Police found evidence in the vehicle that linked the three to the burglary on Deputy Pike, Wallace said.
Foster was arrested on charges of conspiracy to commit burglary, aiding in burglary and consumption of alcohol by a minor.
The 17-year-old juvenile was taken to a juvenile correctional facility on charges of escape, consumption of alcohol by a minor, theft, burglary, conspiracy to commit burglary and attempted theft.
The 12-year-old was placed on house arrest and released to the custody of her parents.
Foster has a pending burglary case in Jefferson Circuit Court.
