A 48-hour long investigation has come to an end with the arrest of three men and a minor, all connected to a multitude of residential and vehicle burglaries.

Residents living in the Buckingham area, specifically in Remington Oaks subdivision and the River Hall Community were targeted during the morning hours on Thursday.

The thieves opened garage doors with stolen openers and removed property while residents were fast asleep, the Lee County Sheriffs Office said.

Security footage installed at a home on Hampton Boulevard shows an ATV being pushed out of the neighborhood by one suspect while the other one is riding it. A second ATV was also stolen along with various personal items of residents.

Detectives were able to track down the suspects from fraudulent credit card charges used at a Sunoco Gas Station, a McDonald's and a 7-Eleven all caught on surveillance footage.

18-year-old Philip Harris, 18-year-old Dustin Day, 34-year-old Jason Carman and a minor were all located and arrested.

They all face Burglary, Grand Theft and Fraud charges.
