Following a search, police detained three suspects, one on Bennett Springs Drive, another on Foxfire Drive and a third on Walnut Street. Boone County sheriff's deputies, a K-9 unit and Columbia detectives in the Criminal Investigations Division helped with the search.
None of the suspects were armed when officers arrested them.
No injuries or property damage were reported as a result of the incident.
