911: "Emergency 911."

Woman: "Hi, someone just broke into my house with guns and I got out through the garage."

Around 3 a.m. Thursday, Ardmore Police say a woman heard a noise coming from the back of her house on Oak Ridge Rd.

According to the recorded 911 call, the woman got up to check to see if it was her son when she spotted two men going through his bedroom.

The woman says to dispatch that the men told her to sit on the floor, held a gun to her head, and wanted to know where the safe was.

The woman then took them to her garage.

"She did what they were saying to do and at the same time she was planning her escape and did very well at escaping the residence," Ardmore Police Capt. Keith Ingle said.

Ingle says the woman opened her garage and fled to call the police.

She tells dispatch she watched the two men get into an SUV that had a getaway driver waiting and drove away.

Police were on their way when they spotted the SUV that matched the description she gave.

They attempted to pull it over but it took off, leading police on a high-speed chase on I-35 North.

"And traveled all the up to the 45 before they ran out of gas and that's the only reason they stopped without incident I believe," Ingle said.

Inside, three men from Norman: 19-year-old Ethan Kchao, 18-year-old Clay Wilburn and a 17-year-old who was driving the Jeep Cherokee.

Officers recovered a stolen pistol, an airsoft pistol and the woman's and her son's belongings.

"We found out that he (the son) actually knew two of the people who had been invited to his home years ago," Ingle said.

A crime that's left this normally quiet Ardmore neighborhood startled.

"You always want to hope that they are going to get here in a timely manner and really do you justice," Anette Edington said. "I love that they got here (and) found the people and they are now being taken care of."

Ingle says the two men were booked in on several charges including conjoint robbery.

The 17-year-old was taken into juvenile custody on the same charges.
