Greensboro, NC -- Police arrested three men Friday after a lengthy investigation into thefts at long-term storage facilities in Greensboro.

The men broke into more than 500 rental units in 20 incidents at several storage facilities throughout the city, according to police.

Police first noticed the burglaries in August 2012.

In one of the cases, police say the suspects stole 30 weapons from a storage unit. Police recovered eight guns after receiving a tip from the Crime Stoppers hotline. That tip also led police to the suspects.

Officers arrested Irving Emanuel Boone, 31, at his home on Pyrus Court Wednesday. He's charged with 11 counts of burglary from Public Storage. He also faces 10 counts of Felony Burglary and two counts of Felony Larceny after the Fact for breaking into West Market Street Self-Storage.

He's being held under a $50,000 secured bond.

Police also arrested Tyrone Sintell Cartwright, 32, at his home on Fig Leaf Court Wednesday. He faces 11 counts of Felony Burglary from Public Storage. Additionally, he is charged with 10 counts of Felony Burglary and two counts of Felony Larceny after the Fact for breaking into West Market Street Self-Storage. He also faces two counts of Felony Possession of Stolen Goods.

Cartwright is in jail under a $100,000 secured bond.

The final arrest came Friday when officers detained 24-year-old Floyd Edwin Brown at his home on Northland Drive around 3 p.m. He's charged with 11 counts of burglary from Public Storage.

Brown's bond is set at $20,000.

All three suspects are in the Guilford County Jail.

Detectives worked with Crime Stoppers, other law enforcement agencies, storage companies and callers to develop a list of suspects and recover stolen property.

Police are still investigating the cases, and more charges are pending.
