Police respond to apparent break-in on southside

La Crosse, WI (WXOW) -

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – La Crosse Police responded to what appeared to be a break-in, which later turned out to be a false alarm.

Police said they received a call at 5:46 p.m. Tuesday afternoon from neighbors near 24th Street between King and Cass Streets about an apparent break-in.

Police say they later learned the people who were trying to get inside lived at the residence. Neighbors called 911 because the tenants were using a crow bar and a shovel to try to get inside.

Police came out with drawn guns because "it's standard protocol" until they completely understand the situation.

Fortunately, nobody was hurt, and police say if you see something suspicious, it's always best to call 911.
