APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - Appleton police are crediting an alert citizen to helping them catch some suspected burglars.

On Monday night, the person called the P.D. after spotting two men go into a vacant house on West Cherokee Dr. 

Officers found the two men walking in the area a short time later. They were allegedly carrying some tools police believed could be used to break into things.

Some footprints in the snow helped lead officers to several vehicles and garages that were broken into. 

Both men are 18-years-old. One is from Appleton and the other is from Oshkosh.
