EL MIRAGE, Ariz. -

Three people face theft charges after a stolen vehicle was found outside an El Mirage home on Saturday night.

Hector Frankie Beltran, Jose Alejandro Medrano and Silveno Manuel Avalos were arrested, and later booked into jail and charged.

DPS says a company truck was stolen sometime early Saturday morning in Glendale.

The owners had installed a GPS on the truck before it was stolen and were able to track it to a home near El Mirage and Cactus Roads.

The owners called police and after they arrived, police say several people ran into the home and barricaded themselves inside.

The SWAT Team was called in and authorities eventually had to deploy gas into the home. No one was injured.

Beltran, Medrano, Avalos, Monica Marie Scheffert and another woman were arrested on Saturday. Neither woman has been charged.

The three men were charged with theft of means of transportation, conspiracy to commit theft of means of transportation, operating a chop shop and obstruction of justice.
