HOUSTON (CBS Houston) According to Texas A&M University officials, two brothers who were former Corps of Cadets band members, have been charged with allegedly burglarizing dormitory rooms during football games; when the alleged burglaries occurred, the rooms were not occupied.

Authorities believe that the brothers are responsible for more than four dozen burglaries on the campus of Texas A&M.

Twenty-four-year-old Jovan Ashley Martinez of College Station was arrested Monday and charged with three counts of burglary of a habitation, each a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison. He remained in the Brazos County Jail Tuesday without bail.

His brother Eleazar Martinez, a political science senior, has reportedly agreed to surrender to police by Wednesday and faces the same charges as his brother.

Additional reports indicate that the dorm room burglaries took place during an A&M football game, when cadets and band members were either at home games or away games, with the exception of one, which occurred during Aggie Muster.

The stolen items, which increased each time included: movies, clothing, jewelery, lap top computers, digital cameras, Aggie rings, money, iPads, gaming systems, video games and other valuables.

Based upon a thorough investigation and extensive questioning, authorities  stated with the present circumstances at hand,  there was enough evidence to show that both of the Martinez brothers conspired to commit the burglaries; they also had a plan for carrying out the crimes.
