AUSTIN, Minn. (AP) — Police used a boat to catch a burglary suspect who made his getaway in a kayak in southern Minnesota.

The 31-year-old man from Austin, Minn., was arrested Sunday as he tried to kayak away from a restaurant with what police say were stolen items.

Police say the restaurant was closed when an employee giving a tour interrupted a burglary.

Officers found two people in kayaks on the Cedar River and got one to talk to them.

That information led police to believe the second man was involved in the burglary.

Police got a fire department boat and, with a firefighter driving, were able to catch the kayaker. Authorities recovered cleaning supplies and lighters apparently taken from the restaurant.
