According to Russell County Sheriff Derek Polston, the investigation into the thefts resulted in the arrest of Nathan Harden of Adair County on November 28 and Jonathan Atchley of Russell County last Thursday.

Harden faces charges of theft of a firearm, burglary first degree, and theft by unlawful taking $1,000 or more.
