WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) -- The two suspects wanted by Wausau police for a series of robberies were apprehended shortly after noon Friday.
25-year-old Rocky L. Noah and 26-year-old Darryl D. Wood were apprehended by officers when they tried to flee on foot from the house they were hiding in on the 600 block of Steuben Street. An anonymous tipster reported a possible sighting of Noah and Wood. Detective Captain Greg Hagenbucher says they caught them in a neighbors yard, unarmed. They have been wanted since a different anonymous tip told police Wednesday that the car stolen from one of the ransacked homes was in a garage on McIntosh Street.
A third person was arrested during the execution of warrants. 18-year-old Ivan Villaseca was arrested for operating a vehicle without the owner’s consent and possession of stolen property.
Police are still inviting anyone with information about the recent string of burglaries to call them at 715-261-7800.
