Five roommates were charged Saturday after they reportedly broke into a University of Illinois at Chicago building and stole $35,000 worth of musical equipment.

Kenneth Stanek, 18, and Rodney Moore, 19, were both charged with four counts of burglary and one count of criminal damage. Noah Ferris, 18, was charged with three counts of burglary and one count of criminal damage. Rasheed Williamson, 21, and Emilio Guzman, 24, were charged with two counts of burglary.

Prosecutors said the burglaries took place between Sept. 25 and Monday in a UIC building when, in at least one occasion, the men broke wooden lockers and pried them open to take the equipment, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The incidents were reportedly captured on video and court records show Ferris allegedly tried to pawn a stolen trumpet on Oct. 13.

The suspects, who are all roommates in the 400 block of South Morgan Street, were arrested Friday morning and were each held on $10,000 bond Saturday.

A UIC spokesman said the school had no record of the students being enrolled at the school.
Their next court date is set for Oct. 25.
