The Lee County Sheriff's Office has arrested three suspected burglars.

Christopher Russell Nelson, 28, of Opelika, 18-year-old Januari Rhiannon Nelson of Valley, and 31-year-old Eric Steven Bledsoe of Auburn were arrested Tuesday May 13 for third degree burglary and second degree unlawful theft of property.

A Lee County Sheriff's Deputy located a vehicle matching the description near the intersection of Lee Road 158 and Lee Road 379, Valley, Ala.  A search of the vehicle revealed property that had been reported stolen by the homeowners. 

According to a member of the household who witnessed the burglary, the three suspects came onto their property and took scrap metal and items from their shed. 

All three occupants of the vehicle were arrested on burglary related charges.   Christopher Nelson is currently being held on a $6,000 bond but the other two have been released.
