(CBS/AP) MEDFORD, Ore. - Authorities in southwest Oregon say two burglars took electronics, jewelry, collectible coins and bulk metal ingots, in a break-in last fall.

They also took a carton of orange juice from the refrigerator, shared it and left the carton on the garage floor.


The Jackson County sheriff's office says the state police crime lab was able to get DNA evidence from the OJ carton, and it matched two suspects in an FBI database.

The loot from the Eagle Point burglary included $10,000 in silver and coins in a safe. Sheriff's spokeswoman Andrea Carlson says none of it has been recovered.

Additional charges have been filed against one of the two suspects, a 33-year-old man who was jailed in an unrelated break-in. The sheriff's office said Wednesday it's still investigating the other suspect.
