TEMPE, Ariz. - Two Arizona State students and football players were caught on tape stealing electronic equipment from a dorm room.

The two football players have been suspended indefinitely.

According to police these two Sun Devils not only burglarized people inside their same dorm, but the victims even play on the football team with them.

According to police ASU's Lee Adams is seen in the video noticing the door to the dorm room is unlocked and open. He calls for his roommate and fellow teammate Jamil Douglas.

The video shows Douglas, an offensive lineman, kept guard while Adams, a defensive end, allegedly steals items from inside the dorm room.

After a few minutes they take off.

Adams can be seen stuffing an X-box under his shirt as they walk away from the room’s entrance.

Cameras also captures the pair a little while later making their way back to the dorm room.

This time Adams has a back pack and again with Douglas on look out patrol, Adams grabs what he can.

According to the police report, he stuffed the back pack with two Mac-book Pro Laptops and several video games for that system he snagged earlier.

Police said the surveillance camera was set up by someone who got upset about trash being left in the hallway and put up the camera to record 24-7.

According to the police report, Douglas was using one of the stolen laptops when the warrant was served.

They were both arrested for second degree burglary.

The break-in has other students living in San Pablo locking their doors and watching out for their neighbors.

A third person who is a minor and suite mate of the victims was questioned and according to the police report, they found unburned marijuana leaves in a bag in his room and it was recommended that he be charged with facilitation of second degree burglary.
