Police in Milton arrested a pair of career criminals this week in connection with spree of car break-ins and credit card fraud.

Police executed search warrants at a Milton apartment and an SUV on West Milton Road, where they recovered evidence including purses, cameras and other items stolen from cars. Police say the suspects have also used stolen credit and ATM cards to purchase items such as gas, beer and cigarettes.

The two men arrested are Michael Prescott, 47, who was already on probation for other offenses, and Ricky Shortsleeve, 44, who has more than a dozen felony convictions on his record and was on field supervision with the Corrections department.
