Police arrested four people after a Bethalto business owner reported seeing them burglarizing several storage units on live surveillance footage.

Go 2 Storage’s owner said he was watching the surveillance cameras at about 11:45 p.m. Monday when he saw people entering several storage units, according to a Facebook post by the Bethalto Police Department.

Police responded and were able to confront the accused burglars at the business, and reported finding multiple pieces of stolen goods in a vehicle. This was confirmed by the storage unit occupants, the post said.

Four people were charged Wednesday with felony burglary. Their bonds were set at $70,000 each. The charged are:

▪  Mark A. French, 39, of Baldwin;

▪  Wayne E. Knight, 40, of Collinsville;

▪  Kellie L. Jarrett, 47, of Collinsville;

▪  Derrick W. Stover, 32, of Caseyville.

Go 2 Storage is located at 200 Rue Des Chateau.
