MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Four men are accused of stealing millions of dollars worth of construction equipment over a period of more than 10 years.

Shelby County Sheriff's Office identified the suspects as Oscar Celallos, Jose Lopez, Victor Gonzalez, and Iserel Delacruz. 

Deputies took WMC Action News 5 inside the home the men used as their headquarters in the crime scheme.

"This is almost like gong to Lowe's or Home Depot," Chief Deputy Floyd Bonner said about the house on Chelsea Avenue.

At the home, investigators found 10 vehicles, $745,000 in roofing shingles, $88,000 in rolled roofing, $12,000 in roofing nails, $14,000 in aluminum drip rails and rolled trim, and $13,000 in stolen lawn equipment.

"They were selling it out of the house to roofers," Bonner said.

Deputies used video surveillance to track the thieves back to the house.

The investigation is not over. Deputies expect to make more arrests as they continue to pour over surveillance footage and learn more about who lived at the residence.

If you believe your roofing materials were stolen in this scheme, call Shelby County Sheriff's Office.
