BATON ROUGE - A group of burglars made their way into several LSU students' dorm rooms as they were sound asleep over the weekend.

Suspects Marvin Keith Jones and Donte Jones were arrested Thursday night for burglary of an inhabited dwelling and theft of a motor vehicle.

Police are still searching for Jacoby and Jacory Cossett, a pair of juvenile twins with a history of committing crimes with the other two suspects.

The LSU Police Department said the crimes happened at Herget Hall between the hours of 2:30 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 5. Investigators said it appeared a student inside the dorm allowed the suspects inside earlier that morning before the four began pulling on door handles around the residential hall.

Several items were stolen, including a wallet, Apple watch and car keys. Two vehicles were then stolen from the parking lot, including that of the student who initially allowed the suspects inside the building.

Officers said all dorm rooms hit were unlocked at the time.

Anyone with information on their whereabouts should contact LSU Police at 225-578-3231.
