PERRY COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

The Perry County Sheriff's Office has two men in custody after the men rode on a train without authorization.

According to officers, they were alerted to two men that hopped on a train and were hitching a ride through Perry County, Missouri on Saturday, August 12.

At 12:16 p.m. on Saturday, BNSF railroad police contacted the Perry County Sheriff's Office and explained that there were two unauthorized riders on one of their trains headed north from Cape Girardeau.  They intended to stop at McBride and asked officers to wait for the train and apprehend the two men.

Kade Schoch, 18 of Goodfield Illinois, and Titus Williamson, 18 of Eureka, Illinois, were taken into custody and charged with first degree trespass.

The men explained they were camping near Cape Girardeau when the train came by and stopped.  They both decided to explore the train cars when the train began moving.  

Before long the train was going too fast to jump from and so they decided to just wait until it stopped somewhere and get off then.

The train slowed down in the McBride area and the men jumped off. 

Police said that the two men were taken into custody around the Chester Bridge on the Perry County side.
