CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) -

Police arrested and charged two Carbondale men Wednesday with being involved in two different burglaries.

Timothy L. Zacheis, 28, of Murphysboro and Jason L. Zacheis, 28, of Grand Tower were charged with attempted burglary and possession of burglary tools.

Officers were in the area of the 2200 block of Sweets Drive conducting security checks of businesses. Officers then heard an alarm activate and discovered damage to the door of one of the businesses, according to Carbondale Police.

Police say they then saw a car leaving the area, which was stopped by other officers responding to the area.  During the course of the investigation, officers arrested the two men who were in the car, Timothy L. Zacheis and Jason L. Zacheis, according to police.  

As the investigation into this incident progressed, Detectives obtained and executed a search warrant for the Zacheis' residence. 

Detectives collected additional evidence which resulted in both men being charged with an additional count of burglary from a business in the 1300 block of E. Main Street, which was reported on June 10, 2011.

Police say the investigation into other burglaries the Zacheis' may be responsible for is continuing.

Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the Carbondale Police Department at (618) 457-3200 or Crime Stoppers at (618) 549-COPS (2677).
