The officers searched the area with the help of Wayne County sheriff's deputies, found the suspect vehicle and arrested two people at a home in the 300 block of South Virginia Street.
The resident, Jamal Raynor, 19, and Devon Swain, 19, of West Chestnut Street were charged with two felonies, breaking and entering and larceny. Each was placed in the Wayne County Jail in lieu of a $50,000 secured bond.
