Three teens have been arrested over an alleged break-and-enter in Hackett’s Lake just before noon on Thursday.

Halifax RCMP say they were called to the scene after a homeowner saw three people coming out of his house.

The trio fled in a car on the Peggys Cove Road.

But police say they spotted the vehicle near Ashvale Court, thanks to tips from the public.

When officers stopped the vehicle, police say, the three teens ran into the woods.

But they were quickly arrested.

There was no immediate word on charges.
