The neighbor reported seeing two people carrying a television set behind a home.Police said they found Arnold and Leonard in possession of items taken from the home on Savannah Garden Drive. They were taken to police headquarters for questioning.

That is when detectives linked the men to an incident about 8:30 p.m. Monday, February 24, 2014, when a man said he was approached by two men in the 8800 block of Crump Road. The man said he had just gotten off the light rail system and was getting into his car when the men came up.

In connection with the Monday incident, Arnold and Leonard were charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon. They also were charged with felony breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering and conspiracy to commit breaking and entering.
