Homeless Pair Arrested at Burned-Out, Unsafe Apartments

NORFOLK, NE — Two homeless men have been arrested after breaking into a burned-out apartment building that was declared unsafe following a week-end fire.

Police were called to the Benjamin Avenue Apartments Monday, after a neighbor heard what sounded like a door being kicked-in.

Officers say they found both 35-year old Anthony Fuerhoff and 29-year old Levi VanFleet carrying small bags of meth.

According to police, Fuerhoff also had a woman’s watch while VanFleet , who was wanted on two out-of-county warrants, was carrying a large coin. Both were arrested on drug and burglary charges.

According to court documents, the two have a history of burglary arrests. In August VanFleet pleaded not guilty to  a pair of May and June break-ins.

Both men were taken to Norfolk City Jail before being transferred to Madison County.
