A pair of teens have been charged with burglarizing the Okaw North Hunting Club near Mascoutah.

Cody L. Procasky, 19, of Fayetteville, and Chase A. Ripley 17, of Freeburg, were each charged with one Class 2 felony count of burglary. Each had their bail set at $30,000.

According to the St. Clair County Sheriff's Department, the teens broke into the hunting club Dec. 15 and took a large amount of alcohol and personal items from inside the club in the 10000 block of Buddy Funk Lane.

Members of the club spotted a suspicious vehicle at the site and called the sheriff's department. That allowed the crime to be solved, St. Clair County Sheriff Rick Watson said.
