TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) – Police say two alert employees caught and held a man who allegedly was trying to burglarize a Cargill plant in Topeka.

Topeka police Sgt. Steve Roth says the employees saw the man break into a fenced-in area that holds heavy equipment on Tuesday night. When the employees ran into the area, the man was “messing with” a utility vehicle.

Roth says the man took off running but the employees caught him, subdued him and then held him until police arrived.

Roth tells The Topeka Capital-Journal  the employees did all the work and “I just showed up and applied the cuffs.”
