Two men are in custody after the Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office broke up a suspected burglary ring. Investigators are now sifting through at least $100,000 worth of stolen property, some of it coming from a local elementary school and a township.
The arrests came last Thursday when a woman caught one of the men trying to steal from her home southeast of Haysville.
The suspect took off and was later arrested. Investigators also caught a second man and recovered a storage unit full of stolen items in south Wichita. Police identified them as 29-year-old James Sanderford and 30-year-old Dominic Voelker.
Both men were charged with burglary, theft, and criminal possession of a firearm. Investigators say more charges are likely.
Detectives have linked the suspects to burglaries of Oatville Elementary in the Haysville School District. The Waco Township also had property stolen.
