    Police arrested two men accused in a burglary spree in Prince William County. Police said they cracked the case when the stolen items turned up on Craigslist.

    Prosecutors charged Thomas Lopez and Larry Salamanca, both 19, with two home burglaries in the Bull Run area of Manassas, Va.
    They were finally caught when one of the victim’s noticed that his child’s pink Disney laptop was listed on the Craigslist website.
    One of the victims said he would check Craigslist every day from work to see if the items would turn up. When the stolen item did, he contacted police.
    In most of the crimes, the burglars entered the home by forcing the sliding glass doors open.
