Instead of just getting fake IDs like the rest of us, three 19-year-olds from Covina, CA devised a plot to steal two 30-packs of Tecate beer from a local grocery.

According to police, Nicholas Kalscheuer and Nicholas Fiumetto each tried to walk out of the store with a case of the suds. However, a store employee noticed what they were doing and followed the duo, causing Kalscheuer to drop the beer before being detained by store security.

Fiumetto was able to make it out of the store with his booty, and got into the bandits' getaway car, which was being driven by Andy Huynh.

Another store employee jumped on the hood of the vehicle, causing Huynh to crash into a curb and send the employee flying. The employee was hospitalized with abrasions and released later that day.

Fiumetto and Huynh then fled on foot. After a brief chase, police caught Fiumetto hiding inside of an active car wash tunnel, of all places. Huynh made it home -- but since he left his wallet in his abandoned car he wasn't hard to find.

In the end, the trio was charged with robbery, resisting arrest and assault with a deadly weapon. And, as you can see above, they provided some pretty interesting mugshots.
