Two Fulton County men were charged with felony burglary and theft Nov. 29 after the two allegedly stole money from White's Tire Barn and Southfork Cafe.

Danny Joe Miller, 24, of Camp and Michael Marshall Lewis, 23, of Salem have been charged with two counts of commercial burglary, class C felonies; theft of property, a class C felony; and theft of property, a class A misdemeanor.

Salem Police Chief Al Roork said Miller and Lewis stole a computer valued at $1,500 and $300 in cash from the Southfork Cafe Nov. 26.

Roork said Miller and Lewis broke into White's Tire Barn and took $10 to $20 in change from a cash register.

Miller and Lewis were stopped Nov. 28 by State Police Cpl. Ronnie Stewart.

"Without Ronnie's help this case may not have been solved," Roork said.

Miller and Lewis were questioned and then taken into custody, said Roork.

According to an affidavit released by the Fulton County Clerks Office, Lewis admitted to breaking into White's Tire Barn and Southfork Cafe. He said he stole the money and then split it with Miller who was waiting outside.

Miller and Lewis were stopped by State Cpl. Ronnie Stewart prior to their arrests.

Bond for Miller and Lewis was set at $5,000 a piece. Both posted bond the next day.

The two are slated to appear in Fulton County Circuit Court Dec. 6.
