Last updated on Thursday, June 20, 2013

(NASHVILLE) - Brown County Sheriff Detectives arrested two Indianapolis men after they allege the men burglarized more than 20 homes in Brown County this spring.

According to Detective Scott Southerland police arrested Brandon Antrim and Aaron Green, both 19, on numerous felony burglary and theft charges.

According to police the two, along with a third man, who has yet to be arrested, targeted mostly vacant homes that were for sale or under construction in the area of Freeman Ridge Road, Hoover Road, Lower Schooner Road, State Road 45, Gatesville Road, Bean Blossom Road, Upper Bean Blossom Road, Unity Church Road and Woodlake Road.

The men are accused of taking, power tools, whiskey, copper tubing used in plumbing and heating and a television.

Det. Southerland believes when the men cut the propane gas line at the home on Unity Church Road that sparked a fire destroying the home.

Police say a warrant has been issued for the third person, but they have yet to find him.
