LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - The two would-be burglars arrested after a neighbor caught them and held them at gunpoint were in court Tuesday.

When police arrived they found the two suspected thieves on the ground being held at gunpoint. There was a third thief but he got away. Police also found TVs, and jewelry scattered throughout the neighborhood.

Adams was charged with conspiracy to commit a burglary, second degree burglary and resisting arrest, and is being held on $200,000 bond. Linen was charged with second degree burglary and is being held on $3,500 bond.
