*Update* A SWAT standoff in East Austin ended with three burglary suspects in custody.
Austin police say they got the call about a burglary in progress a little after 5 p.m. Thursday afternoon on the 1100 block of Northwestern. They say when they got there the three suspects were caught in the act.
APD managed to get them out of the house where they were taken into custody. But police then received information a fourth suspect might be inside.
The SWAT team was called out a little after 6 p.m. A chopper was in the air for most of the night and they had the house surrounded until 10:30 p.m.
Corporal David Boyd with the Austin Police Department says he believes the suspects will be facing burglary of a residence charges.
This is an update to a previous story. The original version is as follows:
