LARAMIE, Wyo. — Investigators say the discovery of a man wearing a sweatshirt stolen during a series of car burglaries in Casper led to arrest of two suspects in the case.

Codey Parsons, 19, and Justus Ochs, 18, were arrested Monday and appeared in court Wednesday.

A search warrant shows that a Laramie woman told police she saw a man wearing a striped sweatshirt stolen from her car at a K-Mart over the weekend. She provided a description of the man, which led to the arrest of Ochs.

According to the warrant, at the time of his arrest, Ochs was carrying a Kindle Fire that had been stolen from a car the previous night.

Parson, who is Ochs' roommate, also reportedly admitted to burglarizing the cars with him.
