A trio has been arrested for allegedly ramming into three police cruisers, landing three officers in the hospital with minor injuries.

Capt. Bravo says the suspects rammed the police cruisers while escaping officers after a burglary.

Officers were sent to a home in the area of Iroquois Road in Pueblo on reports of a burglary in progress at 11:15 a.m. Tuesday. The three suspects were exiting the home as law enforcement arrived on scene. The suspects raced away from the area, striking one of the officers' vehicles in the process.

The pursuit ended when the Durango rammed another unmarked patrol car and lost control. It came to a stop in the area of Iroquois Road and Horseshoe Drive after hitting a third police vehicle.

The suspects jumped out and tried to run at that point.

Two of them, Bobby Sanders and Eric Maes, were caught on the 1600 block of Iroquois. The third, Filberto Solano, was caught on the 1600 block of Kickapoo.

According to the police report, officers went back to the home where the chase began and found the front door had been kicked down. They say the home was ransacked and two televisions were stolen.

All three suspects were arrested and transported to Pueblo County Jail where Sanders and Maes were booked on charges of second-degree burglary. Sanders was booked on the charges of second-degree burglary, vehicular assault, vehicular eluding, and several outstanding warrants.
