Blue Crush helps MPD snag burglary ring

Memphis Police are on the scene of a burglary bust, following analysis of statistics that showed them where to wait and when.

Police say seven people are in custody this morning outside a home on Wolf Trail Dr. in North Memphis after Memphis Police swooped in on them, effectively interrupting a burglary in progress.

Officers on the scene tell Action News 5 they believe these individuals to be part of a burglary "ring" that has been terrorizing the neighborhood.

According to police, air supported spotted the burglary occurring and police were able to catch the burglars while they were still in the home.  Statistics from Operation Blue Crush reportedly helped police allocate better resources to this particular neighborhood and may have facilitated the arrests.

This is a developing story and we'll have a live update on Action News 5 at Noon.
