Trevor J. Wilson, 18, and Austin J. Dillard, 20, were arrested after they allegedly stole a large sum of cash and several other items from the residence.
According to the Sheriff's Office, Deputy Chris Jones was dispatched to the home that evening.
Before long, Jones had located the stolen cash and items in a vehicle parked at one of the burglars' homes, less than a tenth of a mile from where the victims lived.
While on the scene, Sheriff Bob Grudek said, Jones received a tip that Wilson had fled into the woods.
After a short search, the deputy found and arrested the man. Grudek said he thought Wilson had not fled only because he was under the impression that the officers on the scene had drug dogs, which they did not.
Dillard was arrested the following day.
Grudek said all stolen property and most of the cash had been recovered. There was some discrepancy between how much money the victims said was missing and how much was recovered, he said. However, he added he was confident all the stolen property was accounted for.
Wilson, of 110 E. Mountain Ave., was charged with residential burglary, theft, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of possible drug paraphernalia.
He was released Oct. 3 after posting $2,500 bond.
Dillard, of 702 High St., was charged with residential burglary and theft. He is awaiting trial in the Carroll County Detention Center, and no bond has yet been set.
