Jessus Garcia, 24, and Fernando Garcia, 19, are charged with breaking and entering and receiving and concealing stolen property.

Police say the men forcibly gained entrance into the shed Oct. 6, then took lawn equipment and a John Deere Gator vehicle in which they drove off.

The Garcias were arrested Thursday without incident, police said.

The stolen equipment was found in a densely wooded area near Warren Road and I-275.

Jessus' bond was set at $50,000/10 percent, and Fernando's bond was set at $20,000/10 percent.

They are both due in court Oct. 31 for a probable cause conference.
