SHEPHERD — Two suspects were arrested Monday afternoon after allegedly breaking into a home in Huntley, fleeing the scene and crashing at Osness and Frey roads.
Sheriff Mike Linder said Monday that he was unable to identify the two men, who were arrested after someone called in a report of “a couple of suspicious people walking in the area.”
One of the men had a warrant seeking his arrest on another charge, Linder said.
He said he had few details as the arrests had just happened.
