Two arrests made in Lonsdale thefts

On Monday, July 19, police arrested Troy K. Anderson, 19, and Matthew R. Vlasak, 23, both of Lonsdale, on four felony counts involving theft, and one count of damage to property.

The report filed with the Rice County Sheriff's Office states that the Lonsdale Police had been investigating a string of burglaries at local businesses.

The police obtained a full theft report from Great Wrench Owner Ron Johnson, which included serial numbers of tools that were taken.

During questioning Anderson provided information about several burglaries involving himself and Vlasak that occurred in Le Sueur, Scott and Rice counties. Both Anderson and Vlasak were booked into the Rice County Jail.
