Police arrested two men Monday morning after officers caught them breaking into a scrap yard business in northeast Houston.

Investigators said the break-in happened around 2:30 a.m. at The Metal House Inc. on Jensen Drive near Evella Street.

A security guard first spotted the two men as they were climbing the fence surrounding the scrap yard. He called 911, and Houston police arrived at the scene to set up a perimeter.

The responding officers caught the pair in less than an hour.

Names of those involved were not immediately released.
