BONNEY LAKE, Wash., July 21 (UPI) -- Instead of ordering a pizza or hitting up a 24-hour diner after a night of drinking, three Washington men allegedly decided to settle for a burglary instead of a nightcap.

The men, all of whom are under 21, allegedly broke into the garage of someone who lives near the Tapps Island Golf Course and stole a stool, computer tower, hammer and cordless drill.

Prior to the burglary, the victim had seen the three men -- Grant Agather, Elvis Marler and Austin Stone -- driving around in a golf cart.

When police spoke to the suspects, Stone reportedly admitted that the "three of them were drinking beer and driving around in the golf cart." Agather told police he had "consumed an entire case of beer by the time of the burglary."

Some of the stolen goods were reportedly stashed in a crawl space at Marler's house, and his mother told deputies that her son "was out all night with a golf cart," KOMO reported.
