REDFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) — Three teens have been arrested and are facing several charges in connection to numerous home invasions in Redford.

According to police, 18-year-old Anthony Pickett, 17-year-old Jaishawn Harris and 19-year-old Kenyotta Fairley, all of Detroit, were arrested on Wednesday.

Police said the investigation is ongoing and may lead to additional charges. They are also encouraging anyone who has been a victim of burglary to contact police at 313-387-2599.

All three are charged with first degree home invasion, receiving and concealing stolen property, receiving and concealing weapons, receiving and concealing a stolen motor vehicle, three counts of felony firearms and one count of commission of a felony with a motor vehicle.

Investigators say they used surveillance video from Ring doorbells to identify the men as suspects - again and again in the area where burglaries happened over the last couple weeks.

On Wednesday, investigators say an alarm went off at a home near Lyndon and Inskster. The detective sergeant on the case responded, and spotted the suspect vehicle. He followed for a time, waiting for back up.

When officers tried to pull the suspects over, there was a short chase. It ended near the intersection of Evergreen and Outer Drive in Detroit.

Police say the burglars did what many do – knocked on the door to see if anyone was home before breaking in.

"What they do if someone does answer the door, they make up a name 'Is so and so home?", and then the answer is 'no'. And then they just leave," said Al DiPrima with Redford Township police. "So that is something for the public to know, if that happens they can contact us."
