Cops in Rancho Cucamonga say they've identified a growing crime ring tied to students at several  Rancho Cucamonga high schools. They say the teens have been allegedly operating as a gang, breaking into homes and cars across the city.

Detective Albert Ixco told KFI's Andrew Mollenbeck that the crime ring has been causing trouble for the last two years. 

"We're talking robberies, burglaries, grand thefts." 

Detectives were able to track down the suspects after finding social media posts the group had put online. Members of the gang were spotted posing in photos holding guns, drugs, and money. Posts were also discovered on sites likes Craigslist and Offer Up with the stolen property for sale. 

Two teenagers have been arrested, and more may be on the way according to police.
