OSCEOLA, AR (KAIT) -  The two men police say have burglarized several Region 8 Walmart stores are in police custody. 

According to Detective Ollie Collins with the Osceola Police Department, 19-year-old Tyrone Bernard and 18-year-old Daniel Robinson turned themselves in to Osceola police around 7:30 p.m. Monday, December 3.  

"Two gentleman come up here and turned themselves in, telling us they were Tyrone Bernard and Daniel Robinson. They knew that they were suspects," said Osceola Chief of Police David Gladden.

The pair told police they are the hooded men in the Jonesboro Walmart surveillance video hammering away at a display case containing iPads. They said they are responsible for the rash of electronics thefts at Walmarts in Jonesboro, Paragould, Pocahontas, and Osceola.

"Walmart is telling us that's it's about $10,000 in property and damages of breaking the case that they broke where the B and E comes in and the property taken," Chief Gladden said."We recovered about $7,500 worth of cell phones that they did not get away with, but they did get away with some other items."

The men could face felony theft charges, and breaking and entering charges for at least $20,000 dollars worth of stolen merchandise and property damage at the stores, according to preliminary reports.

Chief Gladden said he does not know why the men chose to surrender in Osceola. Robinson and Bernard have Memphis addresses listed as their places of residence.

"I want the people of Osceola to realize that these are not our residents and we're going to work our best to solve these cases and we're glad they turned their selves in."

The two men are in custody at the Osceola Justice Building, but have not been formally charged.
