(KMOV.com) -- Three burglary suspects are in custody after an intense manhunt on Chouteau Island near Granite City, Illinois.

Authorities said, officers were called to the scene Thursday afternoon at the Old Chain of Rocks Bridge after a security guard saw three suspects on a security camera breaking into cars in a visitor parking lot.

When officers arrived on the scene, a vehicle driven by the suspects collided with a police cruiser.  The suspects got out of the car and started running from police.  One suspect was captured and arrested.  No officers were injured in the collision.

Two other suspects attempted to elude police on Chouteau Island.  They were captured a couple hours later.

Illinois State Police and the Madison County Sheriffs Department assisted Madison police with the search.
