Two men are facing burglary charges after being taken into custody Monday morning. Fairfield County Sheriff, Dave Phalen, says 19-year-old Jamel Wood and 19-year-old Isaiah Moore may also be connected with other burglaries in the area.

A press release indicates the two were seen leaving a West Chester subdivision with large trash bag. Phalen says a deputy pulled the two over in their car and conducted a traffic stop, only to find a TV, other electronic equipment, and jewelry in the trunk.

He says that deputy also discovered Wood didn’t have driving privileges and Moore was wanted on an active warrant.

If convicted, the two could face eight years in prison and a 15 thousand dollar fine.
