Three Philadelphia men were arrested Tuesday in connection with an attempted home invasion robbery at an apartment complex in Cherry Hill, police said.

Cops responded to the Bishops View apartment complex on Marlton Pike near Lexington Avenue around 9:20 a.m. and were told that the suspects fled in a black Volvo SUV. Police found the men nearby and took them into custody.

A gun the men used in the attempted home invasion was also recovered during the course of the investigation, police said.

James Haines, of Reese Street near Blavis in Hunting Park, William Jefferson, of Marshall Street near Butler in Hunting Park and Khalil Smith, of Lenox Street near Broad in Tioga, are charged with robbery, burglary and weapons violations — among other offenses, police said. They’re each being held on $325,000 bail.
