Police say early Monday morning Miami County Sheriff’s Department responded to a tripped alarm at a residence at the 2000 block of West North Street in Bennett’s Switch.

Deputies found evidence of a break-in and called for assistance. Upon entering the home, officers found 18-year-old Allen Ray Roberts Jr. and 19-year-old Robert J. Johnson who appeared to be in the middle of a burglary.
