IZARD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) – A father and his son were arrested for burglarizing a home in their neighborhood.

According to the Izard County Sheriff's Department, they received a call in reference to a residential burglary in the Cool Water Resort area at Sylamore.

They say the owners of the home reported they had left their home earlier in the day and returned later that same afternoon several items had been taken from their home.

While interviewing some neighbors, authorities came about information that described two individuals who lived in the same neighborhood who were seen by the residence earlier that day.

The victims headed to the suspects' house and found some of their property in the suspects' home. When the victims questioned why their property was in the suspects' home they were asked to leave.

Izard County deputies then asked for permission to search the home but the suspects denied them. After they prepared the search, they discovered several items in the attic which were later identified by the victim.

Two televisions, an XBOX, video games, two controllers, a Sentry speaker system, two speakers, a hand woven belt, a wooden plaque, a VCR/DVD combo, TV remote and other items were found in the home that belonged to the victims.

51-year-old Steven Gavabain Stewart and 25-year-old Justin Daniel Stewart were arrested and charged with residential burglary charge and theft of property.

Steven Stewart appeared before District T Judge David E. Miller and was released with an Izard County Circuit Court date.

Justin Stewart remains in the Izard County Detention Facility on a $20,000 bond.

Sheriff Lawrence said that other property crimes in the Sylamore area remain under investigation and charges are likely in the next few days.
