Two Topeka men, both 43, were arrested Tuesday afternoon after they were stopped near U.S. Highway 40 and Kansas Highway 10 west of Lawrence.
Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman, said officers connected the suspects to the reported burglary of an attached garage of a residence in the 3600 block of Hartford Court, in which two men removed several items including an air compressor and fishing equipment.
McKinley said a nearby resident reported the incident to police and provided a description of the suspects to police. The men remained in jail Wednesday. Cheryl Wright, a Douglas County district attorney’s office spokeswoman, said if the men are formally charged, they will appear in court today.
