U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers working at the Detroit Canada Tunnel apprehended two men Thursday who they say were involved with a string of burglaries in Saginaw County. 

Authorities said the two 18-year-old U.S. citizens were refused entry into Canada. Upon their return to the U.S, and initial questioning by the primary CBP officer, the vehicle was escorted to the secondary area for further inspection. 

Police said secondary checks of national databases along with fingerprints showed multiple charges for one of the men, including dangerous drugs, controlled substance, burglary, larceny and a home-invasion conviction. 

Articles such as lock boxes, jewelry, electronics and personal documents not belonging to either individual were found during the vehicle inspection. CBP officers contacted the owners of the documents who each confirmed their homes had been broken into within the last few days. The Saginaw County Sheriff's office confirmed the items in the subject's vehicle were linked to burglary reports in the area.

The two subjects, vehicle and all contents of the vehicle were turned over to the Bridgeport Township Police Department, who are handling the investigations of the burglaries. Both individuals are currently being held at the Saginaw County Jail.

Police have not identified the two men and didn't state when charges could be filed against them.
