Officials with the Lee County Sheriff's Office have arrested three men in connection to a Saturday night string of car break-ins.

Matthew Loughmiller, Bryan Moreland, and Tyler Dias were arrested Sunday afternoon after a tip came in that they may have been involved with several car break-ins.

Police stopped the men at the intersection of Hartley and Oakleaf Lane.

Inside their F-150 truck police found a white trash bag filled with items stolen from vehicles on the east side of Albany the night before.

All three men are charged with three counts of entering auto.

Police say the cars that were broken into had no signs of forced entry.
