Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - Rochester police say a man interrupted a burglary Thursday morning.

Police Lieutenant Tom Faudskar says the man discovered two men inside the attached garage at his home in the Hart Farms neighborhood in southwest Rochester around 7:20 in the morning. The homeowner indicated the men, who appeared to have rearranged some items in the garage in order to steal them, responded by running out of the garage and fleeing in a vehicle.

29-year-old Tyler Treichel was arrested after he was spotted driving a vehicle in the same area, while Lieutenant Faudskar says 33-year-old Brandon Moore of Stewartville was caught riding a small BMX bicycle. Faudskar says unopened mail addressed to eight different residents of the Hart Farms area was found in the vehicle with Treichel.
