Rachel Gusman and Brandon Meyers have been tied to at least 17 burglaries throughout the Vegas valley, according to Metro police, who raided the couple's home on Jan. 23.

The pair is also involved in a home invasion where the victim was forced to walk around the house identifying items of value. Police seized a number of stolen items from their Uxbridge Drive home, including five off-road motorcycles, two TV's and two trailers, among others.

They also found Meyers, an ex-felon, to be in possession of two shotguns and a handgun. His vehicle had a switched VIN plate, and had been reported stolen.

Meyers and Gusman seemed to target high-value items, police say, and electronics, tools, jewelry and fur coats were recovered from the home.

The couple was arrested and are now facing a multiple charges including robbery with a deadly weapon, first degree kidnapping with a deadly weapon and three counts of burglary. Detectives are looking into adding further burglary charges to the list.
