RUTHERFORD COUNTY, Tenn. (WTVF) — Two Murfreesboro men have been arrested in connection with a triple murder out of California.

The Rutherford County Sheriff's Office says 23-year-old John Poh and 22-year-old Jordon Byrd, along with two other suspects from California are facing murder charges after what detectives believe was a home invasion robbery turned murder.

The incident happened April 18 in Glendale, California.

Franklin Sadler and Jacob Jamora were arrested Thursday in their respective home in California.

Poh and Byrd were arrested after surveillance and a coordinated effort from multiple agencies including Rutherford County Sheriff's Department, Murfreesboro Police and the FBI's Nashville office.

“This was a tremendous collaborative effort on the part of all agencies involved to ensure these murder suspects were taken into custody without any danger to residents,” Rutherford County Sheriff's Capt. Britt Reed said.
