A K-9 unit was brought in, and three of the suspects were apprehended in the woods. Aaron Jefferies, 45, Robert Crowley, 39 and Ryan Leonard, 24, were each charged with burglary, and Jefferies was also charged with giving police a false name. The fourth suspect remained at large late Wednesday morning.
Inside the truck, investigators found numerous kitchen appliances.
A short time later, police received a call about suspicious activity in the nearby Brittany Park subdivision, where callers said two men in a black Ford Bronco appeared to be loading air conditioning units into the vehicle, Parker said.
Police stopped the Bronco as it was leaving the neighborhood and found four air conditioning units crammed into the back of the vehicle, Parker said. The two men inside were arrested without incident, she said. Their names have not been released.
Parker said the two incidents were apparently unrelated. Detectives were still interviewing the suspects just before daybreak Wednesday.
