Three Pennsylvania residents are in the Broome County Jail after they were found to be in possession of a stolen car and guns.

Broome County Sheriff’s discovered the stolen vehicle behind the Super 8 Motel on Old Front Street.  Police say when they arrived at the motel all three suspects fled the scene.  All three were eventually apprehended.

Police have arrested 19 year-old Omar Jones, 26 year-old Jamie Barton and 28 year-old Joshua Hanson all of Erie, PA.  The three are accused of stealing a car from a local auto repair shop.  When that car broke down in Walton, the trio allegedly stole a second car; the car that was recovered by Broome County Sheriffs.  Police also discovered two stolen guns that had reportedly been used in a robbery in Pennsylvania in that vehicle.
