I just wanted to let everyone know that our detectives have arrested two men for the burglaries and vehicle break-ins that had occurred in our neighborhoods over the past several months. They have admitted and have been charged with a few cases for now. There will be more charges to follow. This gives us the ability to get them charged and hold them at the jail until they can be charged with more incidents.
