They livestreamed themselves ripping items off the walls, throwing things out of windows, breaking into drawers and a storage closet, and stealing items like a rifle scope and a phone charger.

Police caught up with them and arrested them a week later. They each face one count of second-degree burglary, which comes with a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.
