The Yankton Press and Dakotan reports that police say Michael Langley is charged with two counts of second-degree petty theft and two counts of third-degree burglary.

Langley is accused in burglaries in Menno, Yankton, Crofton, Neb., and Wynot, Neb., between Aug. 24 and this past week. Money was taken in at least two of the incidents.

The arrest follows an investigation that involved local police and sheriff's offices, the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation and the South Dakota Highway Patrol.

Yankton Police Lt. Todd Brandt says the agencies started working together once they found out they were having similar problems.

Attorney information for Langley was not immediately available.
