The Ozark Police Department Criminal Investigation Division is continuing to investigate the incident where chainsaws, blowers and trimmers were taken from the store. So far, three people have been arrested and charged in connection to the crime.
Leads established by law enforcement led to the arrest of Jessica Lynn Whited, 25, and Donald Ace Long, 34, of Ozark. Both were charged with burglary and theft of property.
Investigators also arrested Deandre Currinton, 35, of Ozark and charged him with receiving stolen property.
All three suspects were placed in the Dale County Jail without bond.
