The arrests were made after police were called to the 300 block of Claridy Road at about noon Monday after someone saw a white Ford truck driving into the wooded area, Hipp said. Police found the truck with an enclosed trailer stuck in the sand.

When police checked the registration of the truck they learned that it was reported stolen in North Carolina.
