Two teenage roommates accused of stealing thousands in cash, jewelry and other items in more than two dozen Philadelphia-area break-ins have been ordered to stand trial. .

The Delaware County Daily Times reports Harley Rose Gifford and Britney Singleton waived preliminary hearings Monday. Police say they broke into 25 homes in Upper Darby Township between July and September.

The two 19-year-old suspects allegedly stole TVs, laptop computers and other items as well as personal items they needed for their apartment, like toilet paper.

The Daily Times report says the duo agreed to waive their hearings on burglary and other charges in return for the withdrawal of criminal trespass and receiving stolen property charges.
