MADISON COUNTY, Ill. – Two East Alton, Ill. men are accused of burglarizing Farm Fresh in Madison County, Ill.

Keaton J. Weller, 18, and Skylar W. Martin, 19, are each charged with felony burglary.

Deputies with the Madison County Sheriff's Office were called to the store on E. Airline Drive shortly after 4:30 a.m. Friday after an area resident saw two people running from the business.

When deputies arrived at the scene they found the front glass door broken. A surveillance camera captured images of one of the suspects stealing cigarettes and cigars while the other stood watch. Police released surveillance images of the suspects and asked for help from the public identifying the men.

On Friday night someone called the Madison County Sheriff's Office and gave information leading investigators to Weller and Martin. They were taken into custody Saturday evening.

The same Farm Fresh store was burglaries in a similar incident in November 2013. Police weren't sure if the incidents were related, but detectives say they found evidence linking the pair to both burglaries.

Weller and Martin are each held on $75,000 bond.
