Three Cortland men are behind bars after an alleged home break-in late Thursday night, and police have a neighbor to thank.

Sheriff’s investigators say the men forced their way into a house on Loope Road after 10 p.m. Thursday.

They say the three demanded money from the only person inside, but as they got away, a neighbor noticed what was happening and called 911.

The sheriff’s department caught up with the three a few minutes later, using the description that the neighbor gave as he followed the suspects, who were stopped by police on Route 11.

The suspects have been identified as Miguel Coville, 37, of Winter Street; Kyle Dayton, 19, of Park Street; and Timothy Duff, 34, of Owego Street.

The three are now behind bars, and face charges including robbery, burglary and conspiracy.
