LAKE DELTON (WKOW) -- Authorities in Lake Delton say four people have been arrested in connection with an armed home invasion in Rock County Friday night.

According to the Janesville Gazette, the suspects are Christopher Kimps, 24, Whitewater area; Jesse Adams, 22, Beloit area; Kayla Pearson, 21, Janesville, and Sarah Buckingham, 20, Monroe.

Police say their vehicle was spotted just after 1 p.m. Monday on Highway 12 in Lake Delton and a pursuit began. A short time later, all four suspects jumped out of the car.

Authorities brought in K-9 teams and a helicopter as they searched for the suspects.

Officers were able to take two of the suspects, a male and a female, into custody shortly thereafter. Another male suspect was later found and taken to the hospital for possible hypothermia. The final suspect, a female, was taken into custody before 4 p.m.

All four are wanted in connection with the robbery of a couple in Fulton Township on Friday night. The Rock County Sheriff's Department says two men entered the couple's home on W. Miles Road and held them hostage at gunpoint. Officers said the suspects took several long guns, a few handguns, some ammunition and money, and they took off in a truck owned by the couple.

After their arrest in Lake Delton, the four were turned over to the Rock County Sheriff's Department.
