A group of football players from William Paterson University in New Jersey are being heralded by their community and the media after technically breaking into a store to pay for merchandise they needed.
Thomas James, Kell'E Gallimore, Jelani Bruce and Anthony Biondi were caught on camera entering an unlocked all-purpose shop called Buddy's Small Lots after it had closed on Sunday. They proceeded to pick out the goods they needed before noticing there was nobody around, but instead of simply stealing, they left the money--including tax in front of the register.
"We had to get to practice, because we were running a little late," Bruce told the local media on Tuesday. The guys picked up what they needed, just a few dollars worth of merchandise, but couldn't find a store clerk.
"So we decided to put the money on the counter instead of stealing it, because that's just not right," he said.
Surveillance footage of the group later revealed that the group had searched the store for employees, but were unable to find any. Police alerted the owners that there was a break-in at the store, but that nothing was stolen.
