Two Alaska teens (not shown) were charged with burglary after breaking into a Fairbanks area home. Why did they do it? Because they were bored, they said.

According to the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, 19-year-old Jasmine L. States was charged with first-degree and second-degree burglary, which are both felonies. She was also arraigned on misdemeanor charges of fourth-degree theft and possession of burglary tools. Jasmine's 16-year-old friend was arrested on a charge of second-degree burglary.
The two teens were taken in after a woman called the police to report hearing noises outside and seeing a girl walk out of her detatched garage. A box of cigars and a wrench were the only items reported missing, but both were found in Jasmine's car after police apprehended her.

Another resident reported seeing a white car circling her home and logged the license plate with the police. The plate matched the 19-year-old's vehicle.

The two teens confessed to being at both homes. Jasmine also said that she and her friend were bored, and had been watching a TV show about burglaries when they decided to break into homes.

We get that being bored is a huge bummer sometimes, but it doesn't warrant illegal activity. What do you think about the Alaska teens' behavior?
