    Details:

    On July 24, 2014, at 2:02 a.m., District II Patrol deputies responded to a suspicious vehicle call and foil a burglary in progress and make two arrests.

    A citizen out walking their dog observed a pickup truck parked at the business and called the Sheriff's Office. When deputies arrived they observed the pickup truck with two air conditioner condensers, one radiator and one air conditioner compressor in the back of the truck. There was also a large air conditioner condenser on the ground next to the truck. Upon searching, deputies discovered the property fence was cut and one suspect (Nicholas Caplinger) was located laying on the ground inside the property trying to conceal himself under some leaves and foliage. The second suspect was located by K9 Teton, in some tall grass where he was trying to conceal himself.
    All of the property was returned to the business owner and both suspects were transported to Orient Road Jail.
