ORLANDO, Fla. -

Authorities are examining whether a trio of robbers arrested in Orlando are responsible for other robberies in Orlando and Collier County.

The three men were arrested late Monday night as they were cutting a hole in a chain-link fence around a million-dollar mansion in Orlando.

Police officers found on them black clothing, black shoes, black gloves and a black mask similar to those worn by robbers who dressed like ninjas during a robbery of a mansion in nearby Windermere earlier this month.

Officers also found pepper spray, zip ties, duct tape and a gun stolen from Collier County.

Jonathan Contreras and Frank Bower were charged with attempted armed burglary with a firearm. Andres Perez was charged with burglary and resisting without violence.
