All are charged with stealing thousands of dollars worth of tools and other items reported stolen over the last few months.

Nearly 20 burglaries in Hancock County have been cleared by these arrests.

At their appearance in court Wednesday, bail was set for each suspect at $50,000 each.

Assisting the Hancock County Sheriff's Office were members from the Warsaw, Hamilton, Nauvoo and Carthage Police Departments. Hancock County Sheriff's Reserves and Illinois State Police also assisted. The Warsaw Police Department received a tip from a citizen and began investigating.
