Early Thursday morning, officers from the Fairfield Police Department responded to a burglary in progress at 1519 Cambridge Boulevard.  Once on the scene officers encountered to black male suspects attempting to flee the scene.  One suspect on foot was tased after failing to comply with commands from the officers.  The second suspect attempted to run over one of the officers with his vehicle.  Police fired one round at the vehicle causing the suspect to surrender.  No injuries were sustained by officers or suspects.  

Suspects were able to force open a rear door of the residence on Cambrdige Boulevard but were apprehended before any items could be removed from that residence. The suspect's vehicle was impounded pending a search warrant. Upon execution of the search warrant, items recovered from the vehicle indicated the possibility of over burglaries.
