CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- Two brothers are behind bars after police say they allegedly stole a semi loaded with furniture.

Chattanooga Police Spokesperson Nathan Hartwig tells Channel 3, James Tabor and John Tabor Jr. were arrested by Soddy-Daisy police Friday following a near week-long search.

Hartwig says the brothers are accused of stealing a tractor-trailer from a Chattanooga trucking company, which employed James Tabor, on January 15.
