The Graves County Sheriff's Department made two arrests Saturday as part of its investigations into a string of burglaries and thefts occurring at a single residence south of Mayfield.

Brad Bristoe, 43, of Mayfield, is charged with burglary and theft. Tonya Jackson, 43, of Mayfield, is charged with third-degree burglary.

The owner of a residence on Highway 303 reported that numerous thefts had taken place at his home and that he had captured footage of the suspects trespassing and stealing items. The images were from Aug. 13 and 24.

Graves deputies posted the images on its Facebook page and received several tips as to the suspects' identities.

One of the suspects, Bristoe, was found in custody at the Marshall County Jail on unrelated charges.

Deputy Brandon Awbery interviewed Bristoe.

The deputy said he obtained a confession for the thefts, which included a gas-powered generator and a pressure washer.

Bristoe attributed his actions to being under the influence of methamphetamine, Awbery said.

Awbery located Jackson in Mayfield on Saturday night.

Jackson admitted to accompanying Bristoe during the thefts, the deputy reported.

Jackson was booked into Graves County Jail.
