GREEN, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio deputy chasing two burglary suspects fell through ice into a pond but still helped make the arrest.

Summit County authorities were summoned early Tuesday on a report that two people had broken into a couple's home in Green and made off with a laptop computer and cell phone. Deputies tracked the suspects through footprints in the snow.

During the chase that followed, Deputy Dan Cuckler stumbled through ice on a pond, finding himself up to his neck in frigid water.

Sheriff's Inspector Bill Holland says another deputy helped pull Cuckler out and they persistently continued their search.

26-year-old Jabrell Buggs and 22-year-old Ashleigh Cunningham were arrested for Aggravated Burglary. They were in possession of the stolen computer and a gun. They've been charged with burglary.

Holland says Cuckler wasn't hurt and was on the job Thursday.
