Two people are charged with attempting to steal more than $600 worth of beer after breaking into Neyland Stadium on the University of Tennessee campus over the weekend, according to arrest warrants.
Police were dispatched shortly before 11 p.m. Saturday after as many as five people were spotted on security cameras inside the football stadium.
Officers arrived to catch three people inside the perimeter fencing near Gate 22. Two of the suspects were carrying 24 beers apiece.
Beers at Neyland Stadium are sold for $12-13 each.
The total beers between them were valued at $624, the warrants read.
Rachel N. Barber, 20 of Nashville, and Spencer Ranencio Ngumuya, 19, of Osceola, Indiana, both admitted to crawling under the fencing to gain access to the locked stadium, and then deciding to steal the beers once they spotted them inside a walk-in cooler, the warrants state.
Seemed like a good idea at the time, no doubt. In hindsight, though, trying to steal the most expensive Miller Lights in the state of Tennessee might not have been so smart.
