A firearm was recovered and three suspects were in custody after leading police on a wild chase through Morris County yards overnight, authorities said.
It began around 1:15 a.m. Tuesday, when Parsippany officers responded to an attempted vehicle break-in on Prospect Road, Parsippany Police Sgt. Brian Conover said.
While there, the Parsippany Police Department's Communication Center was notified of a crash near Marmora and Frontage roads.
That's when multiple people got out of the car and took off running through residential yards, Conover said.
New Jersey State Police troopers and local officers took three people into custody and recovered a firearm where one of the suspects was found, police said.
Parsippany Officers also took multiple reports of vehicle burglaries as residents woke up this morning and checked their vehicles.
