Four teens were arrested on charges of burglary after they uploaded pictures on Twitter, showing them drinking alcohol in a hot tub of their local health club, police in the United Kingdom said.

The incident happened when the teenagers snuck into the David Lloyd Health Centre in Basildon, Essex, through a fire door as the club was closing for the night.

Once they were sure that all employees left the four teenagers went to the bar, stole bottles of alcohol and jumped into the hot tub. The teens, three of whom are 16 years old and the other 17, took photos of themselves celebrating in the hot tub and posted them on Twitter.

A member of the public who saw the photos on Twitter, called the police, who alerted staff members at the club. The boys were detained for questioning.

Their cases are being tried in Youth Court. Prosecutors told the court that the teens were in the facility from 11:00 p.m. until 1:30 a.m.
