MIDLAND - More charges have been filed against a burglary suspect.

23-year-old Albert Rodriquez of Midland was already charged with burglary but had two more charges filed against him.

Back in march, police say Rodriquez and his friend, Jonathan Mendoza, tried to break into an apartment at the Trinity Place Apartments.

The tenants showed up and foiled the burglary and the two escaped.

But one of them recognized Mendoza and turned him in to police.

Police also got Rodriquez's print from the apartment.

While being questioned, Mendoza confessed and also gave Rodriquez up from a prior burglary.

Both are in custody.
