The agent had gone to his back yard to get his dog and saw the two when he returned. He says he identified himself as an FBI agent and ordered the suspects to stop. Instead, one of the men struggled with the agent.
Prosecutors say the agent shot at the suspects as they fled in a car, but that they were not hurt.
They were caught later that morning after someone called 911 to report a suspicious car outside their home. It matched the description of the getaway car.
Prosecutors say Drach and Case could have faced up to six years in prison if convicted at trial, but that they negotiated a plea deal.
