OSKALOOSA — Two Oskaloosa men have been charged with burglary following a short chase by sheriff's deputies.
On Wednesday, the Mahaska County Sheriff's Office learned about a burglary in progress in the 1800 block of 270th Street. When deputies arrived, they located a 2001 Chevy truck which belonged to David Neuman, 24, of Oskaloosa, at that residence. Deputies noticed the truck leaving the residence with two male occupants and attempted to stop the truck. The truck eluded the deputies, and they gave a short chase, before it ended at the intersection of Highway 63 and 310th Street.
Deputies arrested Neuman and Christopher Minter, 24, also of Oskaloosa. They were charged with second-degree burglary, a Class "C" felony, which carries a punishment of a 10-year prison sentence.
