Police have arrested three young men in connection with at least a dozen Kennewick break-ins where weapons, electronics and other property were stolen.
Police say the trio may also be linked to another dozen break-ins in the area and a burglary in Richland.
Isia Alvarez, 20, Ezekiel Sanchez, 18, and Carlos A. Guizar-Lopez, 20, have been charged with felonies in connection with the burglaries, according to Kennewick police.
Alvarez, of Kennewick, is facing six counts of residential burglary and gun charges, police said. Guizar-Lopez, of Pasco, is facing gun charges and four counts of residential burglary.

Sanchez, of Kennewick, is charged with unlawful possession of a firearm.
Detectives around the area are working together to compare recent break-ins to see if the suspects are involved, police said. Evidence has been sent to the state crime lab that could connect other suspects.
Some of the stolen property has been found, though items are still missing.
Police ask citizens to report any suspicious activity in their neighborhoods and refrain from buying property that could be stolen.
