(ABC 6 News) - A Stewartville man is in custody after allegedly breaking into an empty house  over the weekend.

The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Department received a "burglary in progress" call Saturday afternoon. Deputies surrounded the building in southwest Stewartville, where they say Cordell Young was still inside. Authorities say Young told them he planned on stealing some things to "spruce up" his own home.

Authorities say Young is awaiting possible charges, but there may be some possible mental health complications.
