Two Topeka men arrested in connection to burglary

June 28, 2012


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.
