The Crow Wing County Sheriff's Department reports two men were arrested after they were found inside a cabin Sunday afternoon.

A release said the department received a call from a property owner at around 1:37 p.m. who stated he had surveillance cameras on his property which showed two males on the deck of his remote cabin. He said he believed they may have broken in.


A deputy arrived at the property, located on the 26000 block of County Road 19, and found the cabin had been forcibly entered. The two males - identified as 21-year-old Dustin Lloyd James Schmeda of Minneapolis and 25-year-old Caleb Michael Swanson of Crosby - were found sleeping. 

Both men were arrested. Their vehicle was located at a neighboring property with several stolen items inside.
