Police say two men could be linked to jewelry store burglaries in suburban Philadelphia with losses totaling nearly $1 million.

Authorities in Bucks County says 38-year-old Phillip Prokop and 23-year-old Ryan Wiley were busted after selling assorted jewelry worth more than $47,000 to a pawn shop.

Prokop, of North Wales, and Wiley, of Doylestown, each face charges in two Newtown Township break-ins and one in Horsham, Montgomery County. Wiley alone is charged in another. But both men are suspected in at least a dozen thefts.

Newtown Township police tell the Bucks County Courier Times the total losses for all the break-ins approach $1 million.

Both men are being held on burglary and other charges. It's unclear if they have attorneys.
