HOUSTON – Three men were taken into custody Monday night after a plain-clothes officer with the Houston Police Department spotted the robbery suspects, police said.

The officer saw the suspects in a car on Beechnut at Bissonnet around 10:30 p.m. He called for a marked HPD cruiser, which attempted to pull the car over.

Two of the suspects jumped out and ran. One was carrying a shotgun and the other had a pistol, according to police. 

The driver, who police said also had a pistol, was arrested immediately.

The other two men were caught within a few minutes.

Police said the three men are suspected in several recent robberies in the area.
