Deputies arrived to find an unoccupied SUV in the yard of the home. Officers found items from the house in the SUV.
An investigation, involving canvassing of the are and the viewing of surveillance footage, resulted in the arrests of 29 year old Jamie Pyatt and 30 year old William Owsley at a residence in the 2700 block of Chestnut at 9:30 a.m. Monday.
