It was reported that loud hammering noises and a car alarm could be heard coming from a garage, police said.

Occupants raised the garage door slightly after officers knocked and then tried to close it, however, police said they prevented that and opened it completely.

Police found three men, aged 42, 28 and 18, inside and arrested them.
