DEBARY, Fla., Sept. 30 (UPI) -- Two Florida men face burglary charges after their vehicle, containing $30,000 worth of allegedly stolen electronics, got stuck in a mud hole, police said.

Matthew Swaggerty, 21, and Timothy Marrison, 20, were arrested after they allegedly burglarized several cars and houses early Thursday morning, WFTV, Orlando, Fla., reported.

Police said the two allegedly stole cameras, computer equipment, power tools, a cell phone, camping equipment and other items worth nearly $30,000.

The pair were caught after they drove through a yard in DeBary and hit a sprinkler head, which gushed water and created a big muddy hole, police said.

Police said they located the suspects using a tracking device in a phone that had been reported stolen.

Swaggerty and Marrison are charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling, grand theft and burglary of an unoccupied dwelling.
