Adams County deputies were called to a residence in Payson just after 7 a.m. Monday on a report of a burglary in progress.

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.

Pyatt and Owsley are charged with residential burglary and are being held without bail.

This is the latest in what could be described as a rash of residential burglaries, not just in rural Adams County, but around the area. There have been recent reports of burglaries and thefts at rural residences and farm buildings in rural Pike County, Illinois and Lewis County, Missouri in particular.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
