Three students were arrested Monday after they were caught breaking into FAU Stadium and stealing beer to “hang out and drink,” according to an FAU Police report.

The report stated that Timothy Foo of West Palm Beach hopped the fence to the stadium and let in Jesse Meacham of Hollywood and Christian Klein of Lake Worth. The trio later went up to the third floor of the Marvin and Jane Greenberg Foundations Tower, where they allegedly stole beer from a fridge.

When approached by the arresting officer, the three were spotted with a plastic bag full of empty bottles which they had attempted to drop near a bush, according to the police report. When the police searched Foo’s belongings, the report said that they also found 0.2 grams of marijuana and “paraphernalia.”
