By  | 

JOHNSTON and ATOKA COUNTIES, Okla. (KXII) -- Investigators said four people have been arrested in a burglary spree that lasted for several months and spanned two states.

Husband and wife Regina and Christopher Rogers were arrested back in November and Michael Harvell and Justin Roberts were arrested on Monday, accused of being part of a ranching burglary ring.

Investigators said they've been looking into thefts for about six to seven months. So far they've recovered close to $50,000 worth of items, like side-by-side trailers, augers and other agriculture items.

Johnston and Atoka counties were the leading agencies and the U.S. Marshals and the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture were also involved.

Investigators said more items are being recovered and there could be looking at federal charges as well.

Authorities said there may also be more suspects involved.
