Four males were arrested early Friday after they led police on a brief chase following an alleged burglary.

Arrested on complaints of first-degree burglary, use of a firearm while in commission of a felony, and eluding police were Joseph Eugene Dean, 29; Trenton Dean, 19; Ryan Harris, 33; and a 16-year-old juvenile male whose name was not released. Joseph Dean and Trenton Dean also were accused of resisting arrest.

A judge set $100,000 bond Friday for the three men, who are in the Muskogee County/City Detention Center.

Police Lt. Bobby Lee said officers responded about 12:25 a.m. to a burglary call from a house in the 2900 block of Elgin Street. A woman there told police that a man kicked in the door and pointed a handgun at her and then at a male in the house.

The woman, who had a small child in the house, told officers that the gunman ran out of the house and jumped into a car that sped away.

Lee said the report indicates the victims said only one person entered the house, but all four suspects were arrested on complaints of first-degree burglary.

Lee said Officer Ron Mayes, who was nearby, attempted to stop the car, but it would not pull over.

Officers finally stopped the car, a Ford Fusion, near 26th and Boston streets. Lee said the officers’ report states that Joseph Dean and Trenton Dean left the car and ran from police, but Ryan Harris and the juvenile were arrested in the car.

Lee said officers recovered the handgun used in the alleged burglary.
