UPDATE 2 p.m.:

Two North County men have been arrested after the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office received a call early Tuesday morning about an alleged burglary in progress south of Paso Robles.

Leonard Felipe Trujillo, 38, of Paso Robles, and Henry Theodore Lee Long, 30, of Atascadero, were both booked into County Jail sometime after the 2:30 a.m. incident.

Trujillo was arrested on suspicion of burglary, and Long was arrested on suspicion of being under the influence of a controlled substance and being in possession of burglary tools.

The sheriff’s office received a call indicating that two men were using bolt cutters to cut the chain-link fence at C&N Tractors on Ramada Drive, according to a news release.

Deputies arrived and discovered the cut fence, and began searching the area with a K-9. They located Trujillo, who deputies said was armed with a knife. When he resisted arrest, the K-9 bit him, according to the news release.

Trujillo was taken to a local hospital, treated and then booked into jail.

Long was stopped while walking in the area, and detained when investigators said they discovered evidence that was related to the alleged burglary.

The investigation continues as deputies try to identify anyone else who might have been involved.
