ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — Montgomery County police arrested three people after an off-duty police officer caught the group stealing a police radio and vest from his cruiser.

Authorities say the incident happened Monday afternoon around 2:30 p.m. in the area of Forest Glen.

The three suspects, two men and a juvenile, fled in a maroon minivan that was reported stolen Sunday and were then involved in a hit-and-run accident. The group abandoned the minivan, and police apprehended the group in Silver Spring.
