Arrested were Paul A. Mix, 27, of Bemidji, and Steven L. Obrien, 39, of Cass Lake, Minn., said Sgt. Ross Renner in a news release. The men tried and failed to escape on foot when police came to 2842 Royal Estates Road N.E., acting on a tip from the public, Renner said.

The men are expected to face charges in Beltrami County, where they're held in the county jail, but could also be charged in Fargo, Renner said.

Two trailers were stolen early Wednesday from the Fargo tire shop, one which carried more than $50,000 in tires. Renner said that a majority of the tires were recovered, but the trailer the tires were in hasn't been recovered. The empty trailer was found Wednesday in West Fargo.
