Chief Deputy James Smith says on Friday, Dec. 7, Danny Colegrove Jr. and James Cecil Messer broke into a home in Marrowbone Creek and stole four guns.

Smith says after that, the suspects took the stolen guns and broke into a home on Laurel Creek where they bound three people with duct tape and held one of them at gunpoint -- until he gave the two men the combination for the safe.

Jewelry, knives and medicine were stolen from the safe, with a value of nearly $4,300.

He says both men are out on parole for similar charges in the past.
