Two men have been arrested and accused of more than a dozen burglaries.

Last month, Tallahassee Police showed off $10,000 worth of stolen lap tops, gaming systems and more found in their Lake Avenue.

Now 22 year old Mario Crawford and 20 year old Alfonso Frazer have been arrested and accused of more than 40 crimes a piece, including burglary, grand theft and criminal mischief.

A unique screen on a victim's Playstation 3 led police to their door.

Court records show police also found numerous stolen drivers licences, social security cards and credit/debit cards at the home.

Court records show in several of the break ins, the men unscrewed outdoor lights and then fired a BB into windows so they could gain entry into the apartments.

Police found a bag at the men's home that had a BB gun, BB's, black gloves, a black knit cap and four small flashlights inside.

Police discover $10,000 worth of stolen property in a Tallahassee home.

We went to the house on Lake Avenue, but no one answered our knocks at the door. TPD served a search warrant yesterday at a duplex. Inside, they found $10,000 in stolen property including a flat-screen TV, seven laptops, gaming systems, tools and more. They also recovered 3 guns and a ski mask, but police will not comment on whether those were used in the burglaries or stolen in the burglaries. The lead investigator says the property was stolen in 11 home and car burglaries in the past 2-3 months. They are now trying to trace the property back to its rightful owners.

Police say arrests are forthcoming, but haven't been made yet.
