Deputies: Three suspects on the loose after weekend burglary
BOONE COUNTY - Deputies said they've made no arrests and three suspects are on the loose after a burglary in the El Chaparral subdivision Sunday.
Deputies said suspects stole "numerous items of value" after breaking into a home in the 1700 block of El Chaparral Avenue Sunday afternoon. According to the news release, witnesses reported two suspects entering the home while a third served as a lookout, and all three ran away when the homeowner returned.

However, the report said they eventually lost track of the suspects in the New Haven Meadows subdivision.
