Thousands of dollars worth of electronics are stolen from a Floyd County business.

Now two people are arrested and police are searching for a third suspect.

Televisions, computers, cameras, and other electronics are piled up in the Prestonsburg Police Department.

Investigators say it all belongs to the A Plus Rental store.

Police say last Thursday, employees came to work and thousands of dollars worth of merchandise was gone.

Detectives say they found it at a home in Langley, and arrested Brittany McKinney and Jerry Tackett.

Police say they along with another man broke into the store and took items all night.

“Made several trips to a small vehicle, took that load, come back got another load, come back got another load,” Officer Bryan Hall said.

Police believe the suspects planned to sell the items themselves.

“According to the statements we have from one of the persons we have spoken to, they intended to sell this stuff and gain a profit off of it,” Officer Hall said.

Police believe the third person involved is 26 year old James Prater of Minnie.

Police ask anyone who knows where James Prater is, to call police.

Prestonsburg police also ask anyone who might have bought any of the electronics from the suspects to call them.
