Two men were arrested after sheriff’s deputies found them inside a home near Whiteland after a neighbor called police.

Just before 11 a.m. Thursday, a resident along Tracy Road, east of Interstate 65, called police to report a strange car in his neighbor’s driveway and a man walking around the house.

Shortly after deputies came to the home, two men walked outside, looking startled, according to a report from the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office.

Juan M. Perez, 43, Franklin, and Lance N. Hypes, 33, Indianapolis, each were arrested on a charge of burglary.
