A Junction City man and woman connected to Topeka and Riley County burglaries were arrested Sunday.
The Junction City Police Department received information Sunday that two subjects wanted in reference to an aggravated assault that had taken place in Topeka on Friday may be located in an apartment on Dreiling Road in Junction City. It was also learned that one of the subjects was wanted for questioning in reference to several burglaries that had taken place in Riley County.
On Sunday at approximately 10 a.m., members of the Junction City Police Department began to conduct surveillance on the location and a short time later spotted one of the wanted subjects.
The subject attempted to flee on foot from the officers on scene. With assistance from the Geary County Sheriff’s Department and members of the Drug Operations Group the subject was located and arrested. A second subject was located at the same Junction City apartment and taken in to custody.
Arrested on local charges for felony possession of stolen property and felony obstruction were Paul L. Olberg, 50, and 47-year-old Mary A. Olberg. Both are homeless and both were booked into the Geary County Detention Center on a no bond status.
