Two boys are in trouble after they went on a binge and ate a lot of food inside a store.

The two boys hid from security guards so that they would get locked inside a Sainsbury supermarket in Scotland.

The boys from Glasgow, hid in the clothing department of the store until the East Kilbride supermarket closed at 10:00 p.m.

Once it was closed, the two boys, who are 12 and 13, ransacked the store and made their way throughout the business.

The boys are accused of taking $530 worth of food and drinks. Police said that a camera and two memory cards were missing from the stockroom.

The pair’s food binge came to an end when staff members arrived to their 2:00 a.m. shift and discovered the boys.

Police were called to investigate the incident. The parents of the two boys were called and they came to pick them up, Glasgow police said.

Security was reportedly stepped up following the incident.

One worker said that the shutters were not always pulled down, but they are now being closed after security guards check the store for burglars.
