Two men with lengthy criminal histories have been arrested again in Clarksville. 

Officials with Clarksville Police said 24-year-old Gavin Ray Oliver was arrested around 4 a.m. Monday after getting caught entering an unlocked car. 

Police were called to the parking lot of a Walmart on Wilma Rudolph Boulevard after witnesses reported the incident.

Police said he had a warrant on file for a probation violation. 

At the time of his arrest, Oliver was with 27-year-old Jacob Scott Knight. Police said Knight had a stolen credit card, marijuana and drug paraphernalia in his possession. 

Both were taken into custody and booked at the Montgomery County Jail. 

Oliver was charged with burglary of a vehicle, criminal impersonation, theft of property, and violation of probation. His bond was set at $45,000. 

Knight was charged with theft of property, unlawful drug paraphernalia and three counts of simple possession. His bond was set at $24,500.
