(BUTLER COUNTY, OH) -- A pair of men have been arrested following a string of burglaries in broad daylight.
Investigators with the Butler County Sheriff's Office have been looking into approximately 13 burglaries where suspects would force entry into unoccupied homes and remove jewelry items, guns and electronic items. Many of the robberies occurred in the northern part of Butler County. Investigators also learned several other police departments were also investigating similar burglaries.
Early Wednesday morning, police execute a search warrant on a residence in Franklin, Ohio. Investigators recovered several guns, tools, electronics and jewelry, and additional leads were obtained from the search warrant that led detectives to three locations where additional guns/electronics were recovered.
Police have arrested Bradley Alcorn, 28, and Johnny Sorrell, 27, both of Franklin. Both have been charged with burglary and receiving stolen property.
Investigators are attempting to find the owners of additional property that has not been claimed. Call the Butler County Sheriff's Office at (513) 785-1000 for more information.
