Five men linked to several burglaries in the Memphis, Tennessee, area have been arrested, authorities said. 

Police officers were called Monday to an apartment complex where they spotted a stolen Hyundai Elantra that was being tracked by GPS, Fox 13 in Memphis reported. 

Police saw several men standing around the vehicle before they got into a Toyota Camry with a license tag that had expired in June. 

As the vehicle sped away, the driver made a U-turn and jumped over a curb. Officers used stop sticks to halt the car, and all five suspects fled on foot. After a short foot chase, they were arrested.

An officer found a key to an Infiniti and a “window puncher” that could be used to burglarize vehicles on one of the men, later identified as Damarion Denton.
