Property stolen during the incident has been recorded by detectives. The investigation into the burglaries continues.

"Each of these cases were a result of excellent police work by those who initially responded as well as those who were assigned to investigate," said Sheriff Robbie Holland. "If not for the effort of these officers we may have never recovered the evidence stolen. Their work has also led investigators to additional break ins. The investigation continues and additional arrests are very possible."
