You don't normally hear the sounds of home improvement at 2:30 in the morning, which is why a Madison resident called police over the weekend. "This evidently was a very loud power tool," says Madison police spokesman Joel Despain. "Loud enough that a citizen in the area heard it, and then alerted us."
Despain says an officer arriving on the scene of a plumbing business on Madison's east side found a man cutting a hole in the side of the building, using a cordless reciprocating saw. "The officer orders the guy to drop the sawzall, the officer has his service weapon drawn at this point, and the guy drops the sawzall and we take him under arrest."
Despain says suspect Raynard Lambert had already cut a 3 foot by 4 foot hole when officers arrived and put a halt to his project.
