NEDERLAND (KBMT) -- Three adults and one juvenile have been arrested following an investigation into a string of burglaries in Jefferson County.

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office and investigators with the Nederland and Groves police departments worked together to make the arrests.

Cameron David Pennell, 20, of Nederland, is charged with burglary of a habitation. His bond is set at $15,000.

Jonathan Miller, 20, of Nederland, is charged with two counts of burglary of a habitation. His bonds total $30,000.

Don Franklin McCray, 22, of Nederland, has been charged with burglary of a habitation and marijuana possession. His bonds total $20,000.

Police have not released the name of a fourth suspect, 16, because of his age.

In total, a Sheriff's Office spokesperson says the group is responsible for at least two burglaries in Groves, two in Nederland and two in the county.

Deputy Rod Carroll says the arrests came after deputies got a tip from the Nederland Watchdog Facebook page. This information led deputies to a large amount of stolen property and the identity of the suspects.

Some of the recovered items include 16 guns, 10 flat screen TVs, and numerous computers. The total value of the stolen property is $20,000.
