Police entered the home and found a second suspect hiding inside. He was taken into custody.

While on scene, police say they were dispatched to another burglary in progress in the 600 block of East Chestnut Street.

When police arrived, they say a witness identified the person they say tried to break into the home, but when confronted, that suspect ran.

Police searched the area, but couldn't find him.

They received another call saying someone was hiding in a pool near a home in the 700 block of 7th Street East.

Officers arrived on scene and took the suspect into custody.

According to police, after searching the home on Fifth Street, they found a large change dispenser that contained a large amount of change and cash.
