Two college students who had a broken television decided to steal a working one from the dorm’s gym, according to police in Florida.

Key West police said that they have arrested 26-year-old Joshua Sandberg and 21-year-old Hichem Skhiri, after being accused of taking a working television from their college and leaving behind their broken one.

Both students have been charged with theft. They were released from custody without bail.

According to the criminal complaint, Erika Heffernan, who is the director of student housing at the Lagoon Landing of the Florida Keys Community College, noticed that the gym television has been replaced with a broken one.

She reviewed the security surveillance footage, and saw Sandberg and Skhiri taking the gym television and replacing it with a broken one.

Police were called to the scene, and the gym’s television was found in the room of Sandberg and Skhiri. During questioning, Sandberg and Skhiri admitted to taking the television because they wanted to watch movies on Netflix.

They promised to return the television at the end of the year.

The Sony 42-inch TV, is valued at $700.
