Lawrence police arrested two Jefferson County residents on outstanding warrants Wednesday morning after they were seen tampering with parking meters in downtown Lawrence.
Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman, said police were called at 7:15 a.m. to the 600 block of Massachusetts Street after a report of two suspicious subjects. A 33-year-old Oskaloosa man and a 28-year-old Ozawkie woman were arrested on the warrants.
Sarna said officers in the suspects’ vehicle in the 600 block of Massachusetts Street also located stolen property, including a television and some keys that possibly fit some meters downtown. He said officers were still investigating the stolen items.
