ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) - Two men have been arrested for breaking into a home on Monday.
The incident allegedly occurred in the 5800 block of Maple Avenue. Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce says 46-year-old Daniel Stephenson and 50-year-old Tony Nelson stole a water heater from the home.
Police say they received a call from an alert neighbor. When an officer arrived, he noticed Stephenson was parked in a van near the entrance to basement door of the house. Police say Stephenson then called out for Nelson who then exited the house. The officer also observed a water heater in the back of the van.
The officer spoke to the owner of the house and confirmed the water heater in the van matched the make of the water heater in the basement.
