Two men were charged with burglary early Monday morning, minutes after they were spotted loading stolen loot into a car on Atwood Drive, according to a Macon police news release.
Officers were called to the 3700 block of Atwood Drive about 1:45 a.m. for a burglary in progress.
Two men wearing gray hooded shirts had backed up to a house and were loading items in to a Honda. They then drove off toward Mercer University Drive, according to the release.
Police put out a lookout and an officer pulled over the Honda. Inside, police found a large amount of copper tubing, bolt cutters and gloves, according to the release. Bobby Smith, 26, and Timothy Brown, 25, both of Macon, were arrested and taken to the Bibb County jail.
