Woodstock police have arrested and charged three suspects in relation to a home invasion investigation from early last month.

A Woodstock resident reportedly contacted police around 12:15 a.m. on Feb. 1, saying they had been robbed inside their residence in the northwest end of town.

Patrol officers responded to the scene but were unable to locate a suspect, police said. The suspects were later identified by the London Police Service emergency response unit and taken into custody, according to police.

Officers then completed three separate search warrants: one in London and two in Woodstock.
