TAZEWELL COUNTY, Va. -

A Southwest Virginia family returns home only to find most of their belongings missing.

It happened last week in Tazewell County and now two men face felony charges.

Erik Wickham is charged with breaking and entering and forgery.  Jesse James Stevenson is charged with possession of stolen property with intent to sell.

Detectives say one of the suspects tried to pass the family's checks at a local business and police discovered thousands of dollars worth of the victims' property at area pawnshops.

Both men are currently being held in the Southwest Virginia Regional Jail in Tazewell.
