DEERPARK, N.Y. (AP) - Four people face burglary charges and a puppy stolen in Pennsylvania has been rescued following a break-in at an Orange County home.

State Police in Middletown say a Deerpark resident called 911 Saturday afternoon to report that men were trying to break into his house. A suspect armed with a handgun broke in the front door while the caller was on the phone.

Police say the burglars drove off but their car was tracked down in Port Jervis. As a trooper tried to pull them over, a brown-and-white pit bull puppy was thrown from the car.

The car was stopped and four young men, ages 15 to 20, were taken into custody.

The unhurt puppy was returned to its owners in Matamoras, Pa., whose 55-inch TV also was stolen.
