MADISON, Wis. (WFRV) – A community outreach event in Wisconsin took an unexpected turn after two men were arrested.

According to the Madison Police Department, on November 21 around 11:15 a.m. an officer was dropping off a Thanksgiving meal at an apartment building in the 1300 block of East Washington Avenue. The officer reportedly passed two men who strongly smelled of marijuana.

The two men had reportedly just gotten out of a vehicle that was listed as stolen out of Nebraska. Additional officers were called to the scene for assistance.

One of the men, identified as 23-year-old Tabais Wilson, was found in the hallway of the apartment and taken into custody. Drugs were reportedly found on him at the time of the arrest.

Eventually, the second suspect was found hiding in a closet. The man was identified as 26-year-old Corey Gresham. A gun was also reportedly found under a bed.
