GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Greensboro police say three men face more than 1,100 charges for breaking into more than 500 storage units.
Lt. Mike Brodie says officers have served 971 of the 1,142 warrants.
The suspects are 31-year-old Irving Emanuel Boone, 32-year-old Tyrone Sintell Cartwright and 24-year-old Floyd Edwin Brown III, all from Greensboro.
The charges include breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, possession of stolen goods and injury to real property. Police have not explained how many charges each man faces.
Investigators say most of the storage buildings had fences that required a code to enter. Police say the men broke the locks to enter the units without knowing what was inside.
Police say the break-ins started in October.
It was not clear if the men have attorneys.
