Two teenagers in Kentucky have been charged with felony burglary after they stole an ice cream cake for a prank social media broadcast.

The New York Post citing a press release from John Root, the Laurel County Sheriff, reported that 18-year-old Seth Messer and 19-year-old Ajayci Cotton took the cake from a Dunkin’ Donuts last week and were arrested after their getaway vehicle was seen on Tuesday.

The press release further notes that Cotton recorded Messer stalking the cake, which was worth roughly $25 to $30.

Sheriff’s spokesperson Deputy Gilbert Acciardo said employees approached the suspects, but Messer used profanity to let them know it was now his cake. Acciardo said Messer asked if “We’re going to jail for this?”

“Yes. You stole something that did not belong to you, stealing is stealing,” ” Acciardo responded.

He added that investigators decided to charge them with third-degree felony burglary.

“They did it as a prank, is their exact words,” Acciardo said.

However, charges are expected to be reduced during the court process.
