JAY – A Grove man was arrested after authorities were called to investigate a burglary in progress at a Wyandotte home.
Sheriff’s deputies met with the owners of the residence who said when they arrived home they discovered items on a table and a broken window.
During a search, officers discovered William Eugene Embrey, 41 of Grove, in the closet.
Embrey was placed in custody at that time and during a search of the home, it was discovered that several guns were taken from a gun rack and the suspect had gained entry into the home through the window that investigators determined was broken with a piece of wood.
