ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Two men spotted trying to open apartment doors were later found with possessions from a burglarized apartment following a pursuit by police, Annapolis Police said.

Police were called at about 2:26 a.m. with a report of two men trying to open apartment doors in the area of the 800 block of Monroe Street in Annapolis. When officers arrived, the men took off on foot. One man dropped a backpack as he fled, police said, but he was quickly apprehended. He was identified as 20-year-old Robin Mojica, of Annapolis. The other man who ran, 22-year-old Nelson Umanzor Amaya, also of Annapolis, was stopped later. He also carried a backpack.

Police were able to trace items found in that backpack to an apartment in the block where they were spotted. The apartment’s door had been left unlocked, and the items had been stolen when the residents inside were sleeping, police said.

Mojica was charged with five counts relating to burglary, and Amaya was charged with four counts relating to burglary, police said. They are both being held without bond at the Jennifer Road Detention Center.
