Two LaFollette men were arrested after their victim caught their alleged misdeeds on camera.

Charles Oliver Owens Sr., 41, and his son, Charles Oliver Owens Jr., 18, allegedly broke into a home on Oct. 29 and reportedly took $3,750 of property.

Officers were able to recover the victim’s Stihl weed eater, a Savage .22 rifle and flow master mufflers.

The two men reportedly admitted to selling or trading the other property in order to obtain narcotics.

Both men were arrested and charged with one count each of aggravated burglary and theft of property valued between $1,000 and $9,999.

This is not the Owens’s first run-in with the law. Owens Sr. has been booked into jail six times since 1998. Owens Jr. spent two weeks in jail for aggravated burglary at the end of August.

Owens Sr.’s bond was set at $17,500 and he was released from the Campbell County Jail on Oct. 29.

Owens Jr. remains in the Campbell County Jail.
