On June 12, 2013 at approximately 4:30 pm, patrol officers responded to an apartment complex in the 800 block of Warley Drive in Landover for a report that 25 units had been broken in to earlier in the day.  The suspects stole copper tubing from each of the units.  The stolen copper was then scrapped at an area business.

The three suspects are also linked to 56 other burglaries at an apartment complex in the 900 block of Attlee Way in Landover.  The suspects stole copper tubing and PVC fittings from the sprinkler systems in the utility closets of the units.  The removal of the pipes caused more than $700,000 in water damage to the units.
