Four Mississippi State students burglarized Alabama's athletic complex earlier this week, according to Tuscaloosa police. The group allegedly broke into the school's Mal Moore Athletic Facility. Per the report, the group took Alabama memorabilia. However, the school has not said what was allegedly taken.

The four students arrested are all 20 or 21 years old. All four are Mississippi natives, and students at Mississippi State University. The full group, according to the police report: Thomas Badley Samuel Tanner Fittes, Harper Hudnall, and Joshua Jordan. The four men were charged on Friday.

The alleged crime occurred at 2:17 a.m. back on April 4. The group was caught on surveillance video.

Mugshots of the four Mississippi State students alleged to have committed the crime have been released.

Alabama has not commented on what was taken. The police report only says that it included "various items of memorabilia from within."

It is also unclear whether the items have been recovered. More, from TideSports.com:

According to court documents, the four young men were caught on surveillance video breaking into the complex at 1102 Coliseum Drive at 2:17 a.m. the morning of April 4. A UAPD officer wrote in charging documents that items stolen included “various items of memorabilia from within.”

UA Police obtained warrants to charge each suspect Friday. Documents indicate each was arrested on a felony third-degree burglary charge Monday and released the same day on $7,500 bond.

This isn't the first instance of this we've seen in college football. We've seen numerous instances of students and other fans breaking in to stadiums and complexes.

It is a bit more strange for those students to drive an hour and a half to do it, as these four Mississippi Students allegedly did. However, it is the SEC. As always, It just means more.
