A Craig's list posting led police to two men accused of stealing appliances out of a new home that was being built in Warsaw.

Police arrested Justin Teel and Nathaniel Johnson Thursday on felony burglary, theft and possession of stolen property charges.

The charges stem from a break-in three weeks ago at a new home on Nature Ridge Dr. in Harrison Ridge.

Police tell NewsCenter 16 that within a day of the break-in, appliances matching the ones taken were posted on Craig's list.

Police got a search warrant and recovered the appliances the next day, while both Teel and Johnson were there.

Both men are in jail on $12,000 bond.

Warsaw police and the Kosciusko County Prosecutor's Office think other people may be involved and they continue to investigate.
