CLARK CO., Ind. (WHAS11) -- Two Southern Indiana men are facing burglary charges after police said they used Craigslist to find victims.

Nicholas Daughtery and Tony "Austin" McPheeters are accused of breaking into barns in the Starlight and Borden areas of Clark County. Each man faces five counts of felony burglary and five counts of theft.

Police said they duo stole ATV's, dirt bikes, electronics, fishing equipment and tools.

An alert Craiglist user helped police set up a sting operation which led them to one of the stolen ATVs. Investigators said pair painted some of the items in an attempt to hide the stolen items.

So far, police said they have recovered stolen property several locations-- officers expect to recover more in the coming days.
