Two People Arrested in Attempted Burglary

By  | 

Two people are behind bars for an attempted burglary that was thwarted by a big rig. It happened at a business in the 3300 block of SW 77th around noon Thursday. Authorities say the two "would-be" burglars saw the business owner arrive, and when they tried to escape in their truck, the businessman used an 18-wheeler to block them in.

Arthur Wright, 59, and T.C. Allen, 65, were booked into the Shawnee County Jail on charges of burglary and theft.
