Two men have been arrested for the alleged burglary of two lake homes reported in February.

On March 19, Justin K. Johnson, 19, and Jason D. Owens, 19, both of LaFollette, were arrested in a string of burglaries in the Ivey Hollow Lake home community.

Johnson and Owens made forced entry into two houses and took big screen televisions from each residence, said Campbell County Sheriff Gary Perkins.

One of the televisions was worth about $3,000 and the other was about $1,000, said Detective Jimmy Jeffries who investigated the alleged crimes with Detective Preston Prim.

Since the houses were vacation homes, Perkins said it is unknown when the alleged crime was committed.

Both of the televisions were recovered, said Perkins.

Johnson and Owens were charged with aggravated burglary, theft of property $500 to $999 and theft of property $1,000 to $9,999.

They were both released last Friday with a bond of $7,500.
