Hocking County sheriff's deputies arrested two men they say are responsible for a long string of cases of breaking and entering and theft in the county.
Officers say Robert Tryon, 42, and Michael Terman, 18, are connected to 30 incidences during the past 18 months. The men concentrated mainly on unoccupied cabins and homes as well as garages and barns, according to Hocking County Sheriff Lanny North. Items taken from the dwellings include wire, air conditioning units, scrap metal and firearms.
Tryon and Terman are charged with one count each of breaking and entering, theft and tampering with evidence, however, more charges are expected at a later date.
Hocking deputies are now in the process of identifying possible owners of the property they've recovered. Investigators say they believe there may be more victims who have not reported their crimes and ask those people to call the detectives bureau at 740-385-2131.
