JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Three men on a ghost adventure Tuesday night didn't find haunted spirits. But, deputies found them.

Tamerius Johnson, 19; Brooks Edwards, 18; and Anthony Milligan, 19, are charged with felony breaking and entering.

According to the initial incident report from the Craighead County Sheriff's Department, the three men broke into a vacant house in the 500-block of County Road 339 believing it was "haunted."

A neighbor noticed someone inside the home and called deputies.

When officers arrived, they found Johnson running around inside the house, the initial report stated.

Edwards and Milligan had run away.

Deputies found the other two suspects a short time later walking down County Road 318.

At first the two claimed they were "out jogging," but upon further questioning they admitted "kicking the door open and entering" the house, the report stated.

All three men told deputies they had heard the house was haunted and were just "checking it out."

They were taken to the Craighead County Detention Center where they were held without bond to await a probable cause hearing.
