The three were caught red-handed breaking into a house at 4:30pm on Friday afternoon.
A spokesman for the Dendermonde (East Flanders) jusicial authorities told the VRT that "The three had broken a window and had entered the house."
"The householder returned and they fled with a laptop.”
After a short chase, the police were able to detain two suspects, a minor and a 27-year-old man, in a near-by field. The minor was detained at the behest of a judge from the Antwerp Juvenile Court.
"The boy’s father turned up when the police officers from Beveren arrived at the Antwerp court building. The police identified him as a third suspect that had fled the crime scene in a car. He was detained straight away and will appear before an examining magistrate in Dendermonde later.”
