Three men were arrested early Monday and charged with burglary following a break-in at a used luxury car dealership in Plainview, police said.

Nassau County police said that officers responding to an alarm at Ace Motorsports on Old Country Road found the front glass door “smashed in” — and said a search led to the arrests of Christopher Webb, 20, of Colonial Springs Road, Wheatley Heights; Angel Irizarry, 18, of Woodbrook Circle, Holtsville; and Andrew Schneider, 18, of Pinnacle Drive, Port Jefferson.

All three were charged with third-degree burglary, third-degree criminal possession of stolen property and possession of burglar’s tools. They face arraignment Tuesday in First District Court in Hempstead, police said.

Police said that during the arrests police recovered a digital camera, car keys and an undisclosed amount of cash — all belonging to the shop. A backpack containing the burglar’s tools also was recovered during the arrests, police said.
