Fairfield police got a report of a burglary in progress on Somerset Ave, just off of Rt. 201.

After the car crashed into a ditch, witnesses say two males jumped out and took off.
Authorities swarmed to the area to try to find the suspects.
One of the suspects was arrested in a field off of Rt. 201 just after 3:00 p.m.
