Burglary suspects caught in the act

Timothy Nguyen, 29, and Earl Ireland, 24

Kirksville Police officers say they caught two burglary suspects red-handed.

Shortly after 9 Wednesday morning, officers responded to the 900 block of East Dear Street after a neighbor reported that two men had entered a home that didn't belong to them. The homeowners were not present at the time.

Police entered the home and found Timothy Nguyen, 29, of Kirksville and Earl Ireland, 24, of Trenton trying to hide inside closets.

Both suspects were arrested and charged with burglary and stealing.

Police say they were trying to steal cash and gift cards.
