SALTILLO – Two people have been charged in connection to multiple auto thefts.

Jonathan A. Johnson, 30, and Lori M. Sparks, 25, have each been charged with three counts of breaking and entering auto, plus one count each of grand larceny.

Johnson’s bond was set at $75,000 and Sparks’ at $5,000 by Lee County Justice Court Judge Pat Carr Wednesday afternoon.

Saltillo Police received several complaints of breaking and entering on Tuesday, including of a school bus at the Saltillo High School gym. Police gathered evidence and made the arrests within a couple of hours.

The investigation is ongoing, and the case will be presented to the next Lee County Grand Jury in March.
