PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Two Brigham Young University students and an accomplice have been charged with stealing property from student apartments and blowing up toilets in residence halls.

Court documents say 20-year-old Mitchell Fillmore, 20-year-old Adam Thomas Stevenson and 21-year-old Wendall Robert Strong all face more than a dozen felonies. They include burglary, theft, criminal mischief and destruction of property by explosives.

Court records say the string of burglaries took place between October 2003 and February 2004.

B-Y-U investigators estimate almost 34-thousand dollars in damage to campus buildings and from loss of personal items and 22-thousand dollars in other damages sustained by the construction equipment.

Police say they're also investigating two other students.

The men will appear for an initial court appearance on December second.
