Two people were arrested Wednesday for reportedly being connected with a home invasion in Lafayette County, officials said.

Lafayette County sheriff’s deputies were notified of an ongoing home invasion in the town of Fayette just before 1 p.m., according to a release.

When sheriff’s deputies arrived, they were told the suspects had fled the scene, officials said. A short time later, two people were arrested at a nearby vacant residence.

Steven T. Wiegel, 25, of Darlington, and Joseph A. White, 25, of Dodgeville, have been tentatively charged with one count of burglary and two counts of criminal trespass to a dwelling.

The investigation into the incident continues, officials said.
