Three people were taken into custody by Portland police after they responded to an armed burglary call in northeast Portland Friday.
Dozens of police officers were called to an apartment complex on Northeast 81st Avenue around 1 a.m. after they received an anonymous call stating that burglars with a gun were robbing an apartment.
Police arrived to find the apartment had been ransacked. They had broken the door off its frame to get inside.
Luckily the two apartment owners were out of town at the time.

Officers said they found a basket of stolen items in the street, but the suspects had fled the scene.
With the help of a K-9 officer, police were able to track down the three suspects one-by-one.
The parents of one of the apartment owners said they believe the burglars knew the apartment was empty at the time of the burglary.
The names of the suspects have not been released.
More information will be posted as soon as it is available.
