Two Students Break Into Fraternity House, Steal Natural Light

College kids will do anything for beer these days.

According to the State College Police, on Thursday night, between the hours of 11:30 p.m. and 11:55 p.m. two 21 year-old Penn State students kicked in a locked bedroom door inside the Kappa Delta Rho fraternity house. Upon reaching the premises, the two offenders proceeded to grab three cans of Natural Light — no more, and no less.

An expensive price to pay for a relatively cheap beer, the two students caused $370 worth of damage to the fraternity house.

It seemed like the perfect heist until the police were notified the next day by the fraternity and were able to identify the two offenders with the help of video surveillance by the house. As of right now, the investigation is ongoing and the criminal charges are still pending.  However, along with restitution payments for the damaged door, it is possible the alleged offenders could be facing felony burglary charges.

We will keep you updated this case develops and if names are released. Until then, use a bottle shop.
