HOUSTON -- Three men were on the run early Friday after they were caught stealing metal from a business in northwest Houston, police said.

It happened at the Ameriforge Industrial Plant around 2 a.m. on De Soto at Carver.

A security guard spotted men throwing metal over the fence where they were apparently going to load it up to steal it, but the guard called the Houston Police Department and the suspects ran.

The men were not located, but they fled the scene without their loot.

The men managed to get away by going through a wooded area. A K-9 officer and HPD helicopter were called in to look for the men.
