Police catch two burglars in south Wichita

By George Lawson. CREATED Oct 15, 2013

Wichita police made two quick arrests after a 38-year-old man reported a burglary at his south side home early Tuesday.  The man was awakened by noises at a back window just before 2 a.m., and he got out of the house and called 911.

Police lieutenant Joe Schroeder said officers got to the 1900 block of South Pinecrest and arrested a 24-year-old Manhattan man as he was carrying a television out of the home.   A 44-year-old Hutchinson man ran out a back door, but officers chased him and took him into custody.

The two men were booked into jail for aggravated burglary and theft.
