According to a news release, Boler and Cooper were involved in a traffic stop by Opelika Police who discovered some of the stolen property inside their vehicle. Both were taken into custody and electronic items valued at approximately $1000 were recovered by police.  

Boler was transported to the Lee County Detention Facility, although a bond was set at  $6,000, he is being held due to a revocation of probation stemming from these arrests. Cooper was transported to the Lee County Detention Facility as well and is being held on a $3,000 bond.
