PROVO -- Police arrested two men who are accused of stealing from a dorm room at Brigham Young University.

The Daily Herald reports police were called to Bowen Hall Tuesday after two men were spotted walking around, trying to find open doors.

A resident confronted the men, who said they were at the dorms for a tour. They were directed to the central building but went to Broadbent Hall instead.

Police allege the men entered a dorm room there, stole a backpack, computer, scriptures and other items. Then they were confronted by another resident and said again that they were there for a tour. Police arrived while the suspects were being escorted to the central building.

While police were talking with the suspects, the owner of the stolen items arrived and identified the things as his.

The suspects are identified as Santana Yazzie, 23, of Salt Lake City and Mario Antonio Archuleta, 27, of North Salt Lake. They were arrested on suspicion of burglary and theft. Yazzie also was booked on possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person because he has been convicted of two burglaries in the past and had a knife at the time of his arrest.
