FRANKLIN COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

 Franklin County deputies said they've closed the book on three burglary and theft cases with the arrest of two men.

Investigators said Steven Ray Burfield Jr. was questioned about his role in the burglary and theft of multiple weapons reported on July 8 in the Burnout community. Officers then obtained a search warrant for a residence on Zollie Barnes Road in Russellville.

Deputies found Dedrick Eugene White at the residence and began a search. Investigators found various drugs including marijuana and crack-cocaine, and two weed-eaters and a chainsaw. White led investigators to another location, where they found 11 long guns and one handgun - all previously reported stolen.

Burfield was charged with theft, burglary, and criminal mischief. White faces several drug charges along with receiving stolen property.
