Bibb County Sheriff’s deputies responded to Homewood Suites on Bass Road Sunday around 2:30 a.m. regarding a theft of a vehicle. 

Deputies say that a witness saw two people enter a 2003 Infiniti FX35 causing the alarm to sound and then drove away. The witness also stated the stolen SUV was being followed by a red 2015 Ford Escape.  

Deputies spotted the two vehicles pulling into the parking lot of Flash Foods at 1608 Bass Road. When deputies tried to approach the suspects in the stolen Infiniti, the suspects fled on foot. 

However, deputies managed to catch three of the five suspects. The remaining suspects fled in the Ford behind the Flash Foods.
