Two men are jailed after allegedly breaking into a residence in Le Sueur County and getting caught by the returning homeowner.
The Le Sueur County Sheriff’s Office says deputies were called to a residence in Lexington Township (rural Le Center) just after 11:30 Sunday morning on a report of a burglary in progress.
The property owner told authorities that when he arrived at the residence, he saw an unfamiliar vehicle in the driveway and could hear a couple of men inside. One of the would-be burglars then exited the residence and was detained by the property owner and an acquaintance until deputies shortly after.
Deputies then searched the residence and located a second man hiding in an upstairs bedroom.
The suspects have been identified as 32-year-old David Adams of Chaska and 32-year-old Michael Johnson of Chaska. They’re both currently in the Le Sueur County Jail pending formal charges.
