Two Jacksboro residences were allegedly burglarized earlier this month leading to the arrest of two people on Jan. 22.
Mallory S. Roberson, 20, LaFollette and Brain Thomas Dykes, 20, Jacksboro were arrested and charged with multiple counts of aggravated burglary and theft last week.
According to the Campbell County Sheriff’s Department arrest report, Det. Brandon Elkins investigated the alleged crimes at two houses. Similar charges were also levied on Dykes and Roberson based on additional break-ins.
“I discovered through the investigation that Dykes and Roberson had indeed gone to the addresses and made unlawful entry,” said Elkins.
Elkins further stated in the report the duo had allegedly stolen over $1,000 of property from each of the addresses and sold the stolen property to various businesses and individuals.
“I was able to recover the majority of the stolen property from Bowman’s Jewelry,” said Elkins.
Some of the alleged stolen property was also recovered from individuals that the items were sold to.
“This arrest was made without incident at the Campbell County Jail following interviews of the defendants,” said Elkins of Roberson and Dykes arrests.
Roberson and Dykes were both charged with six counts of aggravated burglary, four counts of theft of property over $1,000 and two counts of theft of property under $500.
They are being held with a bond of $25,000. They are set to appear in court on Feb. 3.
