Two men have been charged in connection with two residential burglaries that occurred in the fall of 2009 and the spring of 2010 in Greybull, according to Police Chief Bill Brenner and Big Horn County Attorney Georgia Antley Hunt.

Brenner, whose department coordinated the investigation, said John Morgan, 21, is up on charges of conspiracy to commit burglary as well as wrongful taking or disposing of property, both of which are felonies.

Asecond man, Christopher LaFollette, 20, is facing the same two charges as Morgan -- as well as a third charge, burglary -- for his alleged role in the thefts.

According to court documents, there were two different break-ins.

The first, in September of 2009, occurred at a South Sixth Street address and resulted in the theft of several items, including but not limited to an Alpine in-dash CD player, a Rockford Fosgate T600 amplifier and a set of Rockford Fosgate speakers, with a total value of $1,6500.

Some of those items were found in at Morgan's residence south of Greybull during a search conducted late last month by members of the Greybull Police Department.

The second home, also on South Sixth Street, was hit in the other burglary. A laptop computer and guns were among the items stolen in that burglary.

Bond was initially set at $50,000 for LaFollette and $25,000 for Morgan.
