Tip helps Appleton police find burglars

Two 18-year-old men are in custody on burglary charges, after Appleton police say someone spotted them going into an empty house.

Sgt. Dave Lund says the person called police around 10:15 p.m. on Monday, and officers went to the 2400 block of W. Cherokee Drive on the city's southwest side. He says they saw Jonathan Steindorf of Oshkosh and Darnell Wilson of Appleton walking in the area.

Lund says officers tracked their footprints, in the fresh snow, through the neighborhood. He says they were checking garage doors and cars, to see if they were locked.

Lund says it's a good example of what can happen when someone calls police, if they see something suspicious. Steindorf was out on bail on other burglary charges.
