Two men are behind bars after an early morning burglary in west Wichita.
WPD officer Charley Davidson said officers responded to a burglary in progress call around 2:30 a.m. at a home in the 7100 block of W. 11th Street.
A citizen notified authorities of two suspects taking property from a nearby home that was under construction. The citizen also said they were driving a silver Ford F-150.
When officers arrived to the scene they found the truck in the area of Maple and Ridge Rd. The two suspects were then taken into custody.
Power tools taken from the home were found in the truck and they were returned to the owner.
A 38-year-old man was booked into jail for burglary, larceny and driving on a suspended license. A 31-year-old man was booked for burglary and larceny.
Davidson said the investigation is ongoing and it will be presented to the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office.
