Two men are in jail in Sweetwater County in Wyoming, charged with burglary and theft, property destruction and defacement of the county’s Archery Range. Bond of $100,000 was set for 30-year-old Sean Jereb and $50,000 bond set for 29-year-old Kolby Darlington. The Archery Range is south of Rock Springs. It was robbed and vandalized earlier this month when a four-wheeler and utility trailer was taken. The Sheriff’s Office put it out on Social Media, and that’s how they arrested the two men.
