Iowa City police have arrested four subjects for allegedly attempting a burglary.

Kodie Kruse, 22, and Taia Garcia, 19, both of Muscatine, were charged Wednesday with attempted first-degree buglary and going armed with intent. Garcia was also charged with possession of marijuana. The other two suspects are minors.

Iowa City police responded to 1220 Keokuk St. at about 11:57 on Tuesday on a report of someone ringing the doorbell. Police reportedly stopped the car and the occupants admitted to being near the house to look for a dog.

Police said they found a shotgun in the car and later learned one subject had a warrant from Muscatine. Officers said the subjects tried to enter the back of the house by removing two window screens, and found the group brought a shotgun to scare occupants during the burglary.
