Deputies arrest one suspect, still looking for another in attempted burglary

BUTLER COUNTY, Kan. (KWCH) The Butler County Sheriff's Office has arrested one suspect and are looking for another in an attempted burglary Sunday.

Butler County Sheriff Kelly Herzet says the burglary call came in around 5 p.m. at a home near SW 230th and SW Butler Road.

A gentlemen noticed some tracks leading back to a cabin and some storage containers on his property. That's when he saw two men in ski masks run towards their truck waving hand guns.

The men ran their truck into the victim's truck then got out and took off on foot north and west.

Butler County, Sedgwick County and the Kansas Highway Patrol were searching for the two men along with dogs and areal support.

"In the last few minutes, we have one of our two suspects in custody. The KHP airplane along with the Sedgwick Co drone was flying the hedge row and saw someone hiding in the hedgerow and they took off from the hedgerow and ran out into the field and they got a spot on him and we sent our units, swat team in for custody. He was taken into custody without incident," said Herzet. "We're pretty sure they stayed together, most of the time they don't separate. So we'll continue the searching and hopefully we'll get the other one in custody here shortly."

Herzet says they're searching from road 220th to 230th and up to County Road 159. He says they'll keep searching until they find this second suspect and clear the area.
