HARRISON, N.Y. -- Three suspects in a White Plains burglary were arrested in Harrison Tuesday afternoon, according to police.

White Plains police responded to an interrupted residential burglary on Devonshire Drive in White Plains at 12:02 p.m. on Tuesday and put out a hotline message to the county within five minutes, according to Harrison police. While responding to the area, Harrison police stopped a car that matched the description of the suspect vehicle, and which matched the description of a car that had previously been seen leaving locations of residential and commercial burglaries throughout Westchester County.

The driver of the car was identified as Klodian Gjeka, 19, of the Bronx, police said. White Plains police advised that two additional suspects had fled the burglary on foot and were at large. After an investigation the two suspects were identified as Joland Gjeka, 16, and Petrit Abazi, 19, both of the Bronx, according to police reports. Harrison police investigated the incident with officers from White Plains, Rye and Mount Pleasant, and search warrants were issued and executed for their homes. The two suspects were arrested late Tuesday at 843 Fox Street in the Bronx.

All three are being held on charges of burglary and fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, which are both Class E felonies. Police said additional felony charges are expected.
