It was Monday that the Aldora Drive home of Tyler and Lori Kurth was burglarized.
"My husband found the back door kicked in but all of the doors were open," said Lori Kurth, a dental hygiene student at Columbus Tech.
Lori Kurth said police told her she was robbed by the same group of men arrested for burglarizing another home on Tuesday.

The couple's 1-year-old Yorkshire Terrier "Killer" was nowhere to be found. A search was fruitless.
Someone who lives in the area, Sha Pollard, found the dog wandering on Schatulga Road. Not seeing anyone searching for the dog, she took it to the nearby Muscogee County Humane Society.
A computer chip in the dog was scanned and the Humane Society knew to whom the dog belonged but nobody was home when contacted.
Tyler Kurth, an Army officer, went to the Humane Society Tuesday and found the 3-pound Killer there.
Lori Kurth said she didn't know Pollard before this but "she'll always be someone special to us."
