Two Mount Pleasant men have been arrested following a more than year-long investigation into a robbery.

According to the Mount Pleasant Police Department they responded to a burglary on April 27, 2017 that occurred at 1000 West Washington Street.

Sawyer was arrested Wednesday and transported to the Henry County Jail pending arraignment. There are still several guns missing and anyone with information is asked to contact the Mount Pleasant Police Department. The Henry County Sheriff’s Office and Des Moines County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the investigation.
