The Holmes County Sheriff's Office has taken two suspects into custody in connection with a burglary that occurred last month.

Joseph Lee, 38, of Bonifay and Geoffery Challender, 31, of Bonifay, were arrested and charged with grand theft, armed burglary, and dealing in stolen property.

The arrests come after investigators received information connecting the suspects to a June 11 burglary that took place in the area of Bonifay Gritney Road and Jim Bush Road in which approximately 20 firearms were stolen.

Those firearms have been recovered and returned to the owner, and more arrests are pending in the case.
