LAKE ANDES-An 18-year-old Lake Andes man was arrested for allegedly stealing numerous knives and alcoholic beverages on Friday.

According to the Charles Mix County Sheriff's Office, Ryan Archambeau and two Lake Andes juveniles are suspected to have burglarized a Main Street residence and the city swimming pool Friday at approximately 6 a.m. Archambeau and the juveniles, who were questioned and subsequently released to their parents, are also believed to have smashed a window at the Lake Andes Public Library.

Charles Mix County Sheriff's Deputy Ryan Paulson observed two male subjects running with backpacks from the Lake Andes Swimming Pool at 6 a.m., and he followed and identified the subjects due to the suspicious activity in the early morning hours. Approximately 15 minutes later, a Lake Andes city employee notified the sheriff's office that the pool had been broken into.

An unoccupied residential apartment on Main Street was also burglarized, where the suspects allegedly stole knives and alcohol.

The sheriff's office was able to use surveillance video to identify the two males seen by Paulson, and further investigations identified Archambeau and the two juveniles.
