Alert store employees notify authorities of possible stolen equipment.

On 06-18-2010 Lawrence County Deputies took a burglary report from MFA in Aurora.  Among the items stolen in the burglary were two computers.  Later that day, two male subjects entered an Aurora business to sell the computers.  Alert employees noticed some identifying marks on the computers that did not appear to be right.

The suspects left the business and a vehicle description was given to the Aurora Police Department.  A short time later, the vehicle with the suspects was stopped by the Aurora Police Department.  Three subjects were taken into custody and transported to the Police Department.  The suspects confessed to the crime and much of the property stolen was recovered. 

Charges are pending on the suspects at this time.
