Spring Break-in: college students caught overnight at SeaWorld
According to police, 23-year-old Duc Thien Nguyen and Huy Quan Mai, apparently students at the University of Houston, were part of a group that scaled the walls SeaWorld San Antonio, broke into a storage area to eat ice cream, and unsuccessfully tried to find animals to take photos with. Three other students got away.
SAPD investigators said five unidentified males in their 20s broke into SeaWorld San Antonio just after 2 a.m.Nguyen and Mai, who claim to be fraternity brothers at UH, were charged with criminal trespass and theft under $500 -- the cops could only get them on the ice cream thieving. They were each being held Wednesday morning on $800 bail. The other three suspects remain at-large.
It’s believed they were carrying out a prank that could be connected to the park’s animals. However, SAPD investigators said they could only prove the men broke into a storage area and ate ice cream.
SeaWorld officials said the park did not find any animals harmed Wednesday morning.
The men were spotted by park security, who then called San Antonio police. Officers chased after the five intruders. Police said they caught two of the men.
