Three Alachua County men were arrested on charges of burglary, criminal mischief and petty theft in Gilchrist County on Friday, reported the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office.

Charged were twin brothers Lyle Beckham and Lance Beckham, 32, and Johnny Railey, 28.

Deputies Meghan Wooten and Eddie Merritt responded to a call at 7040 State Road 47 in reference to three suspicious people inside a home without consent of the owner. The home is in northern Gilchrist County near High Springs.

A family member of the homeowner detained the men until deputies arrived, authorities said. Deputies searched the car of the men and found several items that had been taken from the house, according to a sheriff's office press release.
