(Empire) Fond du Lac County authorities arrested three people Wednesday in connection to a burglary at a business in the town of Empire. Sheriff’s officials received a call from an employee of Sabel Mechanical, which is located at W3150 Highway H, that a suspicious vehicle was parked nearby just before 5am.
Two individuals with masks quickly ran from the company to the vehicle and left at a high rate of speed. The employee followed the suspect vehicle and was able to provide crucial identifying information.
A deputy later located the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop. Authorities say detectives developed probable cause that the three occupants were responsible for the burglary. They were arrested and booked at the county jail.
Detectives are still in search of the stolen property from the business. Residents in the southern portion of the county are asked to keep an eye out for power tools on their property and call law enforcement if they locate them. The investigation is still ongoing.
