Two men were arrested after being caught at an Omaha cell phone tower Tuesday morning.

An alarm brought law enforcement to 605 North Skyline Drive around 3:45 a.m. Nebraska State Patrol troopers were soon joined by Douglas County Sheriff's Department deputies and Omaha police officers in searching the grounds for the suspects.

Forty-eight-year-old Barritt Neenan was taken into custody without incident. Thirty-six-year-old Chad Bennett, found hiding in some thick weeds, was bitten by a police K-9 and taken to Lakeside Hospital for treatment.

Both men were booked for burglary and possession of burglary tools.
