BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A complaint from a neighbor ended with the arrest of two men and the recovery of stolen property.  

Officers were called to a home on Sharlo Ave. on Tuesday, Nov. 19 regarding the possible theft of utilities.

"When officers were on scene they observed stolen merchandise inside of the home," Cpl. L'Jean McKneely, Baton Rouge Police Department, said. "They called for detectives and when they came out, they interviewed the suspects."

We're told the alleged stolen property has been valued at roughly $2,500. Some of the items include a shotgun, ostrich cowboy boots, alcohol, golf clubs, electric razor, two rings, and prescription medication.

According to the arrest report, Ryan Davidson, 19, admitted to investigators that he committed at least three burglaries. Davidson's roommate, Courtland McCullough, 19, denied involvement with the burglaries, but did admit to knowing that the items were stolen.

McCullough was arrested and charged with Illegal Possession of Stolen Things. He was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.

Upon further investigation, Davidson was charged for additional crimes related to the burglaries. He's accused of cashing a check that was reported stolen from a vehicle. His image was captured on surveillance video.

Davidson was arrested and charged with Burglary of an Inhabited Dwelling (3 counts), Forgery, Theft, and Monetary Instrument Abuse. He was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison. His bond is set at $11,000.
