CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Two 19-year-olds have been arrested and charged in connection to more than 10 break-ins that recently occurred at pool clubhouses.

A spokesperson for Chesterfield Police said Thomas D. Perkins, 19, of the 600 block of Woodhaven Drive, and Andrew C. Johns, 19, of the 1900 block of Walkerton Court, were identified as suspects, arrested and charged with five counts each of breaking and entering and five counts each of petit larceny.

Previously identified as the ‘Crowbar Candy Bandits,’ the men are accused of breaking into concession stands, snack bars or clubhouses around the county on 11 occasions, and stealing snacks, candy, cash and maintenance items — police said a vacuum was stolen on one occasion.
