A pair of suspected thieves picked the wrong house to burglarize, and now they’re paying the price for it, according to affiliate station KFOR.

Last month, the FBI and Oklahoma City Police Department arrested a man named Preston Rhoads after they suspected him of plotting ot kill his girlfriend with a deadly poison known as ricin, KFOR reports.

Rhoads has been in jail since then, according to KFOR.

This week, two men, Kevin Phillips and Ramon Stephens, allegedly broke into Rhoads’ home, despite the fact that there were signs up saying to stay away, KFOR reported.

They are accused of stealing a speaker system and some water bottles, according to KFOR.

Police were alerted to the break-in, and the suspects were arrested. Once taken to the Oklahoma County Jail, the two suspects had to be isolated and decontaminated, as did the officers that made the arrest, KFOR reported.
