ELIZABETHTOWN — Detectives investigating two break-ins of Shoe Carnival tractor trailers made two arrests Tuesday night and identified four people allegedly involved with the felony theft.

According to Elizabethtown police, five suspects broke into the shoe-stuffed trailers June 1 and June 19 and stole 700 pair of shoes. The trailers were parked at Hardin Delivery on Magna Drive when the break-ins occurred, police said.

Elizabethtown Detectives Pete Chytla and Kelly Slone, with the help of other officers, served arrest warrants at homes on Moore Drive and David Court late Tuesday in relation to the case.

“We recovered a load of stuff,” Chytla said. “We have shoes all over the PD right now.”

Victor Barroso, 29, and Tiffany G. Bryant, 24, were arrested, charged with felony theft and jailed at the Hardin County Detention Center, police said. Two juveniles connected to the break-ins have been identified but were not detained, Chytla said.

Other arrests may follow, police said.
