SULLIVAN COUNTY, Tenn. -

Two men are facing charges in Sullivan County after a deputy says he saw them running from a vacant home.

Walter Poulin Jr. and Justin Hale, both from Piney Flats, Tenn., are charged with aggravated burglary. 

Sullivan County Deputy John Raymond says he responded to a report of a burglary, and when he arrived at the home, Poulin and Hale started to run. He says he ordered them to the ground until backup arrived.
