Clay County Sheriff's Department Deputies recently received complaints from county residents who believed a Clay County home had been broken into, with several items being stolen.
The property owner had been contacted and confirmed a burglary had occurred.
Deputies were able to follow four-wheeler tire prints left in the muddy roadways, which led to one of the suspect(s) homes in eastern Vigo County.
After several attempts to speak with the occupants of the home, deputies were able to interview a male occupant. The man admitted his involvement in the burglary and provided detailed information.
During the course of the investigation, the stolen items were discovered, both inside the home and garage. Deputies were also able to recover a stolen four-wheeler that was reported in a separate incident.
A second male was identified when he arrived at the residence riding another four-wheeler.
The arrested suspects were identified as Joshua Walls, 34, and Troy Reik, 39, both of Riley. The suspects were preliminary charged with class C felony burglary, which carries a possible prison sentence of 2-8 years.
Both remain incarcerated at the justice center on $10,000 cash bonds while awaiting formal court proceedings.
Meanwhile, deputies also received information, which led them to another Clay County home. They were able to recover a truck that had been reported stolen from the Brazil area approximately one week ago.
Deputies also discovered a clandestine methamphetamine laboratory inside a detached garage where the stolen truck was located. The truck and meth lab are still under investigation.
