JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) — Three suspects are jailed in what authorities say was a burglary ring operating in Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma.

Jasper County sheriff's Capt. Derek Walrod says authorities have identified 16 victims. He says most of the property was recovered last weekend from a storage unit and a house in Joplin.

The Joplin Globe reports the stolen property was linked to burglaries in Jasper, Newton and Barton counties in Missouri, Cherokee County in Kansas, and Ottawa County in Oklahoma.

The suspects were arrested in Jasper County and Newton County. Walrod says other arrests are possible.
