Shawnee Police spent nearly six hours searching for suspects involved in a home invasion, which occurred in Independence, Missouri overnight. A vehicle taken during the home invasion was found in a Shawnee backyard.

Major Dan Tennis says Shawnee Police located the stolen vehicle in the 5200 block of Halsey Street around 4 a.m.

"While getting additional units to the scene, another vehicle left the area and two of the three occupants ran on foot from the vehicle," Tennis said in a news release late Saturday morning.

Operation 100 News was monitoring radio traffic and documented that officers called out a felony car stop at 4:50 a.m. near the intersection of 51st Street and Halsey Street. Seconds later an officer could be heard reporting a black male running eastbound behind the houses. See the tweet below this report.

By 5 a.m., officers had surrounded the neighborhood, in order to search for the suspects. Officers involved in the search were instructed to switch their radios to a county-wide tactical channel which utilizes full encryption and can only be monitored by police and fire personnel.

Tennis says, "a perimeter was established to try and locate the two that ran."

At least seven Shawnee police officers, four Lenexa officers, and two officers from Overland Park held a perimeter in the neighborhood for more than two hours. One of the Overland Park units was a K-9 unit, which conducted a search of the area, but was unable to locate anyone.

At 8:40 a.m., Major Tennis told Operation 100 News in an email that officers had contacted one person and were trying to find two more who may have left in another vehicle.

Shawnee Police also called out their Special Tactics And Response team, otherwise known as the STAR Team and a Shawnee K-9 unit. "They were called and then told to disregard. We called them until we figured out we did not have a couple of felons running from the car," Tennis told Operation 100 News.

The final officers returned to service shortly before 10 a.m. Saturday, as a tow truck was removing the stolen vehicle.

Tennis says, "Independence, Mo Police recovered the stolen auto for their case."

Shawnee Police have not released any other information.
