(KMOV) -- Police say they busted a burglary ring Friday that has been targeting homes in St. Louis' Dogtown neighborhood.

Investigators say Nicholas Works and Aminadab Johnson admitted to breaking in through windows or doors to steal cash, jewelry and electronics throughout the past week. 

The alleged thieves broke into homes on Mobile, Kraft, Park and Dale. Neighbors communicated through e-mail, Twitter and Facebook to share tips and help police find the suspects.

Johnson has been convicted of burglary before.
