Authorities say they two men may be linked to seven additional break ins that have occurred in Onslow County.
They have arrested Michael Deaver & Randall Tefft with one burglary in which the home was set on fire.
The two 20-year-olds were arrested Tuesday night for last week's break in on Haws Run Road and for setting fire to that home. The two are accused of stealing firearms, cash and guitars. Sheriff Ed Brown says the two then set fire to the home, trying to cover their tracks. It caused $80,000 in damage.
Investigators say they plan to charge Tefft with stealing firearms and checks from his own mother and grandmother, along with the additional break in charges.
Both men are in jail on $70,000 bonds.
