ALOHA, OR (KPTV) -

Washington County Sheriff's Office deputies arrested two men after determining they were involved in two commercial burglaries.

On November 4, deputies were called to The Green Signs in Aloha on the report of a burglary. The owner told deputies when he opened the business in the morning, it had been burglarized.

During the investigation, deputies learned that the burglars had also broken through a wall into a neighboring business by cutting the sheetrock.

WCSO said during the same time, deputies were called to check on two men in a 2001 Ford Expedition that had not moved for several days.

While talking with the men, deputies determined that they matched the description of the burglars that were seen on surveillance footage.

Deputies obtained a search warrant for the Expedition. Inside the Expedition they found tools commonly used to gain entry during burglaries and property stolen from the two businesses.

Travis Hendon, 30, and Sanchindra Nath, 36, both of Portland, were arrested.

Hendon was charged with three counts of first degree theft, three counts of second degree burglary, two counts of unlawful entry into a motor vehicle, two counts of first degree forgery, two counts of identity theft, and one count of second degree criminal mischief. Bail is set at $10,000.

Nath was charged with three counts of first degree theft, two counts of second degree burglary, and a Multnomah County warrant for probation violation. Bail is set at $20,000.

On Nov. 7, Hendon and Nath were arraigned in Washington County court. Both men pleaded not guilty.

Both men are due back in court Nov. 15.
