FAIRMONT -

The Marion County Sheriff's Department has arrested two more people in connection to the ongoing burglaries in Fairmont.

Chief Deputy Ralph Wright said the Sheriff's Department has been working with the Fairmont Police to find who is responsible for several months.

Deputies arrested Robert Gross, 26, and William Chester, 25, of Fairmont on multiple charges Tuesday morning.

Deputies executed a search warrant on Walnut Avenue in Fairmont and found stolen tools, DVD players, CD players, and laptops.

Some of the stolen tools were from the Marion County Board of Education and have since been returned, according to deputies.

Deputies believe Gross and Chester have been working with Randy Flickner, 22, who was arrested on Monday afternoon.

Both Gross and Chester have been charged with breaking and entering, grand larceny, and conspiracy to commit a felony.

They are being held in the North Central Regional Jail on $1.5 million bail.

Chief Wright said the investigation is ongoing and more arrests could be pending.
