LAKE COUNTY -- The Lake County Sheriff's Office Detective Bureau has arrested two persons involved in a year-old burglary.

Detectives also have a third suspect from that burglary and have obtained an arrest warrant for her.

On Nov. 28, 2011, the Lake County Sheriff's Office went to 12411 Carter Road in Concord Township regarding a burglary report.

The resident at that address reported that he had arrived home at around 3:45 p.m. to find that someone had forced entry into the residence and took property from inside.

He reported that a flat screen television, laptop computer, and (2) semi- automatic hand guns were stolen.

Responding Deputy Sheriff Edward Pecka was able to locate and secure a fingerprint as evidence.

On April 9, 2012, the Lake County Sheriff's Office was notified by the Pittsburgh Police Department that one of the stolen firearms had been located by their department.

Pittsburgh Police reported that a William Cottrell had been charged criminally for having possession of the stolen firearm.

On Oct. 17, 2012, the Lake County Crime Lab matched the fingerprint that was obtained at the initial response to the burglary to a Myya Ligon-Means.

Ligon-Means had been recently arrested on an un-related criminal charge and was current being held in the Lake County Jail.

Ligon-Means had never been arrested before and is originally from Pittsburgh.

Sheriff's Office detectives Capt. Ron Walters and Detective Brian Butler interviewed Ligon-Means, and she ultimately admitted that her and two co-conspirators committed the burglary.

Ligon-Means identified her co-conspirators as Charles Coster and Jasper King.

Once interviewed, Charles Coster did admit that he, Myya Ligon-Means, and Jasper King committed the crime.

Sheriff's Office detectives were able to secure arrest burglary warrants on Ligon-Means, Coster, and King.

As of today (Nov. 26, 2012), both King and Coster have been arrested on the burglary warrants. Ligon-Means has yet to be arrested on the burglary warrant
