An attempted burglary has led to the arrest of an Audubon man, while authorities are still looking for another suspect involved in the crime.

On Monday morning at about 11:30, the landowner at a home on County Road F-24 in Shelby County discovered two people attempting to remove property.

The property owner called police as the two suspects fled the scene.

When deputies from the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office arrived on the scene they were able to catch one of the two suspects a short distance from the property.

The suspect was identified as 31-year-old Jason Malloy of Audubon. Malloy was taken into the Shelby County jail and held on $5,000 bond. He is being charged with 3rd degree burglary, a class D felony, and possession of burglary tools, an aggravated misdemeanor.

Authorities are still looking for the second suspect.
