Three men were held for provincial court early Wednesday after leading police on a chase through the woods in Conception Bay South.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary said officers were called to a break-in at a construction company yard in the Foxtrap area shortly after midnight.

By the time officers arrived, the burglars had run away.

Police used a dog to track the men.

The trio is being charged with break and enter, possession of burglary tools and trespassing at night. Two of them are also accused of breaching court orders.
