AUBURN — On June 16th just before 12:30 AM, officers arrived at a business along Highway 49 to investigate a sounding alarm.
There they found a car parked next to the business with the interior dome light on, indicating that it had just been parked.
Officers soon noticed one of the business’ windows broken, tipping off suspicion that it had recently been the scene of a burglary. Though nobody was found inside, two male subjects were later seen walking in the area, one of whom was identified as the owner of the vehicle.
Investigation determined that Jonathan South (32) and Benjamin Sorenson (27), both of Auburn, were responsible for the break-in.
South was arrested for burglary, conspiracy to commit a crime, possession of a meth smoking pipe, and possession of a concealed weapon. Sorenson was arrested for burglary, conspiracy to commit a crime, and probation violation.
South’s bail has been set to $500,000, while Sorenson’s has been set to $30,000.
