On arrival, they found a white truck that did not belong to the owner of the house parked in the front yard, and the two suspects were actually still inside the house.

According to the incident and offense report, they had stolen several moving blankets, a $10 wicker box and the center console of a vehicle when the deputies arrived, Jones said.

It was not immediately clear what the relationship was between either the two suspects or the victim in the case, he added.

Burglary in the third degree is a class C felony in Alabama, punishable upon conviction by one year and one day to 10 years in prison.
