Two 16-year-olds from Utah are being charged with theft and burglary after breaking into a truck to steal tubs of ice cream and streaming the whole thing on Periscope, according to NBC News.
The teens broke into the truck’s refrigerated trailer on July 12 in West Weber. Police were tipped off by a West Weber resident, who saw the teens’ livestream on Periscope. “It was a pretty bizarre case for us," Weber County Sheriff's Office Lt. Lane Findlay told NBC News. "First time we've dealt with a crime that was broadcast over Periscope.”
The caller helped police find the teen who posted on Periscope. “He ended up confessing to the crime, [saying] that he and a friend had gone and broken in and taken three or four of these tubs of ice cream and apparently went and put them on people's doorsteps as gifts," Findlay said to NBC News.
The teens will be referred to juvenile court for the charges.
