Police Get Help in Arrest of Bold Burglars
Those burglars are getting bold. La Crosse cops say they've nailed a couple of thugs who let themselves in to an apartment on 11th street in between the UWL campus and downtown early Sunday morning. While there were people inside. Apparently, the guys who lived in the apartment were sitting out on the deck eating pizza at about one in the morning, looked into the apartment and saw two guys rummaging around inside. Same guys came out onto the deck and demanded some of the pizza. A confrontation turned violent quickly. Cops wound up arresting 23 year-old Anthony Lee and 17 year-old Bret Clark with the help of some good samaritans who happened by at about the time a single officer was wrestling with the two thugs. Clark and Lee face a number of charges.
