ALEXANDRIA, KY (FOX19) -- Two cousins have been arrested following a string of over 70 burglaries across several counties in Northern Kentucky.

Det. David Halfhill with the Campbell County Sheriff's Office says Eric and Matthew Farmer were arrested by the Owen County Sheriff's Department last week. Matthew was arrested in Dry Ridge and Eric was arrested in Independence.

The cousins are suspected of over 70 burglaries that took place from late April through July in Campbell, Owen, Carroll, Scott, Bracken and Pendleton Counties. Police say they would take everything from electronics to prescription medications to jewelry to guns and in one case, took signed baseballs and baseball cards.

They were busted when one cousin tried to pawn a stolen TV, which led police to a storage unit in Independence where they found several stolen items.

"They were taking it to the Richwood flea market through friends selling it there they were selling i-Pods for 20 bucks each so any money they could get off any property they were doing so," said Halfhill.

On Wednesday, all the loot that wasn't sold will be on display at the New Liberty Fire Department in Owen County. Starting at 1- a.m., if you believe you may have been a victim of the Farmer cousins, you can see the goods and recover your belongings.

They are currently being held in the Carroll County jail.
