STANTON, Neb. -- Authorities in northeast Nebraska arrested two Columbus people after they were found to be in connection to a farm building break-in. 

The Stanton County Sheriff's Office said they investigated an alleged break-in of a secured farm building southwest of Stanton.

Following the investigation, SCSO said they arrested a man, 42-year-old Justin Robinson, and a woman, 44-year-old Tammy Albers, from Columbus on suspicion of burglary. 

Robinson and Albers were taken into custody Tuesday afternoon in connection to breaking into the rural farm building on two separate occasions earlier this fall, according to the Sheriff's Office. Stanton County Sheriff Mike Unger said the pair was cited and released after being apprehended.

A caller reported that burglar tools were used to gain entry. 

Unger said the investigation was a cooperative effort between the Stanton, Colfax and Platte County Sheriff's Offices into reported thefts in the three-county area.
