Arrests made in Mining and Minerals Museum in Mariposa

FRESNO, Calif.

Back in September, suspects broke in with pick axes while employees were inside. Investigators say they stole more than $1million worth of artifacts and gold. Tuesday, authorities arrested three men believed to have carried out the crime.

Investigators identified the suspects as 40-year-old Edward Rushing from Eldorado County, 43-year-old Matthew Campbell and 41-year-old Jonathan Matis both of Sutter County.

Authorities say more arrests could follow.
