Police say three burglary suspects are behind bars thanks in part to two vigilant citizens.

One reportedly tipped police off to a burglary Wednesday night at medical marijuana dispensary The Organic Seed, after reportedly seeing the suspects run out of the dispensary carrying plants.

A second caller notified police a short time later that he saw people carry marijuana plants into an apartment complex. Officers say they responded to the Courtyard at Willamette Apartments and arrested one man.

Officers located the other two suspects on Dale Street. They also recovered two of the stolen marijuana plants.

Police have identified the suspects as 37-year-old Farreal Williams, 23-year-old Joseph Kennedy and 31-year-old Larry Gardner. The men face charges of second-degree burglary, criminal mischief, theft and conspiracy.
