Scott County deputy Jody Chaney received a report of two suspicious males walking on Route RA outside of Chaffee Saturday evening, according to a new release. Chaney made contact with Fleming and Anderson finding them in possession of stolen jewelry from a nearby residence, the release stated.

Officials questioned the two men and discovered that over the past few weeks Fleming, Anderson and Stephens, were responsible for seven residential burglaries in the Chaffee area, Walter said.
