Syracuse Police have arrested two teens who allegedly pulled the fire alarm at two Syracuse University student housing buildings, and stole items from residents while everyone was evacuated.

The incidents occurred on Aug. 27 at Watson Hall and Lawrinson Hall.

When students returned to their rooms after the fire alarm was cancelled, several of them had noticed that items like laptops, cell phones, other electronics and personal property had been stolen.

19-year-old Abraham Mestre and 17-year-old Peter Geremia were both charged with 15 counts of second-degree burglary and two counts of falsely reporting an incident. 

They were both sent to the Onondaga County Justice Center.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call police at 315-442-5222.
