Muskego police arrested two men suspected of breaking into a garage early Tuesday, just hours after a tornado cut through the area, according to a news release from the city's Police Department.
The men, both 18, were arrested at gunpoint about 3 a.m. by officers investigating a burglary at a residential garage, according to the release.
The men told investigators they committed the burglary because residents and police were busy dealing with the storm's aftermath, the release says.
The men were arrested on suspicion of burglary, 10 counts of theft from a vehicle and three counts of trespassing, according to the release. Officers recovered stolen property worth an estimated $2,200, the release says.
