Two men were arrested in Rutherford County and two other suspects were arrested in Canoga Park, California Wednesday and Thursday in connection with a triple murder April 18 in Glendale, California, authorities said.

Suspects John Poh, 23, and Jordon Byrd, 22, of Murfreesboro were arrested Wednesday in Rutherford County, according to a press release by the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office and Glendale (California) Police Department. Detectives from the Glendale Police Department detectives assisted the RCSO, Murfreesboro Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation in taking the men into custody.

Co-defendants Franklin Sadler, 23, and Jacob Jamora, 23 were both arrested Thursday in their respective homes in Canoga Park, California. Glendale Police detectives took the men into custody with the assistance of the United States Marshal’s, Pacific Southwest Regional Fugitive Task Force.

Agents from the FBI’s Nashville and Los Angeles Field Offices assisted in the investigation.

Detectives said they believe this was a targeted home invasion robbery turned murder.

All four men have been booked on three counts of murder. 

Rutherford County Sheriff’s Capt. Britt Reed said Glendale Police detectives worked with the Sheriff’s Criminal Investigations Division, Narcotics Unit and SWAT Team, Murfreesboro Police and the FBI’s Nashville Office to apprehend the suspects in Rutherford County.

After surveillance, both suspects were taken into custody.

Teams of officers searched their homes.
