AUBURN, AL (WSFA) -

It's now known what three Auburn teens are accused of stealing after being charged with burglary and theft of sports apparel and equipment valued at $13,000.

John D. Williams, 19, Nicholas J. Calvin, 18, and Zachary S. Keeler, 18, were arrested Wednesday in connection with an ongoing investigation into a March 22 break-in at a building on S. Donahue Drive.

In addition to swiping a laundry loop worth $4 and socks worth $15, the trio is accused of going for the big ticket items. Just six things accounted for nearly all the $13K in stolen items.

Police reports show items such as a game ball used in the Auburn Tigers 2010 BCS National Championship game as well as football helmet worn by the game's start quarterback, Cam Newton found their way into the suspects' possession. Each is valued as more than $2,500.

The suspects also took pricey items connected to Auburn sports legend Bo Jackson, including a helmet, jersey and football, for a total value of $7,500.

Gloves, a girdle, jerseys, wristbands and select Under Armor merchandise were also taken.

Police recovered the stolen items in the suspects' possession. Each surrendered after authorities obtained arrest warrants.

They are all being held on $8,000 bond amounts at the Lee County Jail.
