ST. CLOUD,, Minn. (KNSI) Two Twin Cities men were arrested Saturday night after being found inside Design Electric attempting to steal thousands of dollars of copper wire.

Police were called to a report of a burglary in progress. A worker at the business found the suspects inside the building without permission.

Thirty year-old Nathan Johnson of Robbinsdale and 38 year-old Todd Fryman of Coon Rapids both fled before police got there.

With the help of a Waite Park Police K-9, Johnson was located in the 4000 block of Clearwater Road. Fryman was found with the assistance of a State Patrol helicopter in the woods a short distance from the scene.

Johnson and Fryman are being held in the Stearns County Jail. Johnson is charged with 3rd degree burglary, and Fryman with 3rd degree burglary and fifth degree possession of a controlled substance.
