Posted: Updated:

Tonight we have new details on a break-in investigation we first told you about yesterday.

Today, the owners of Woody's Party Store in downtown Mecosta found out police arrested 2 suspects for breaking into their store.

Police say they got confessions from 2 of the suspects, but they are still looking for a 3rd person from Stanwood.

Woody's says within a couple hours of the break-in, someone came forward and returned all of the stolen items.

Lana Blount, a cashier at Woody's Party Store says, "I'm amazed how quick it turned around, within 24 hours, I didn't think it was going to happen but it did."

Two suspects are being held at the Mecosta County Jail for breaking and entering and stealing a tractor.

Their names will be released after they're formally charged.
