The Monroe County Sheriff's Office has made arrests in two burglaries, one from last summer, the other from this past weekend.

Detective Conway Mason said it was July 15, 2012, when a safe containing jewelry, coins and other items worth an estimated $13,000 were taken from the home of William Shultz on Pleasant Drive in Madisonville.

Mason said there were two handguns and two chainsaws also taken. According to Mason, over the course of the investigation, it was found Derek Evans and another man were believed to be responsible for the crime.

Evans, Riceville Road, Athens, was arrested last week and charged with theft of property over $10,000 and aggravated burglary.
