Three men suspected of stealing guns from a home in Dallas were arrested Friday after a two-hour standoff with police in Grand Prairie .

The men were taken into custody without incident about 12:30 p.m. at a home in the 1300 block of Cleta Court, said detective Lyle Gensler, police spokesman.

Earlier in the day, Dallas police had notified Grand Prairie police about three men who were caught on surveillance video stealing guns from a home in Dallas.

The video, which shows the suspects breaking into the home, was posted on Facebook by a man who wrote that his parents’ home was the one burglarized.

Investigators linked the men to a home in Grand Prairie.

When Grand Prairie police conducted surveillance on the home Friday morning, they saw a man who matched the description of one of the Dallas suspects, Gensler said.

Dallas police arrived, and both departments began negotiating with the suspects at about 10:30 a.m.

The suspects were being interviewed by Dallas police Friday afternoon. Authorities have not released their names.
