The men were white, clean-cut and in their 20s.

One was blonde and was wearing a light blue T-shirt, khaki shorts, white tennis shoes and a white wristband on his right hand.

Another was blonde, wore a white tank top, khaki shorts, white tennis shoes and a black necklace around his neck.

The third man was brunette and wore a white T-shirt, blue jeans, white flip-flops, and a black band or watch on his left wrist.

Anyone with information about the break-in is asked to contact the Chapel Hill Police Department at 919-968-2760 or Crime Stoppers at 919-942-7515.

    $2,500.00 worth of booze. At the prices they charge, thats only one bottle of Jack Daniels.

    '"the men were white, clean-cut...." i almost find that comment "clean-cut" offensive, I don't know why, but I've never seen that in a news article before.'

    How could that possibly be offensive? The guys were white males. They didn't have facial hair. Therefore, they were white, clean-cut males. That's about as factual of a description as one could ask for!

    Find them, make them pay for any liquor not recovered, then send them down to the homeless shelter for a LOT of community service hours or even cleaning up all those roadside beer cans. If they are repeat offenders, however, they get some jail time to go with that community service.

    "The men were white, clean-cut and in their 20s."

    "Clean cut"...interesting. Guess they on't want to get the homeless arrested for no reason.

    To davidk_at_unc: Let's assume they broke into your place and stole $2,500 worth of your stuff: Ipad, computer, iphone, TV, jewelry, xbox. etc. Would you still think they should not spend 5 - 10 in prison?

    They did what they did and they will hopefully learn a hard lesson for it. They want if their parents bail them out and not make them pay them back with the money. I don't think this deserves jail time because it will now cost us. I have enough of my own kids to deal with...don't need someone elses. This can be handle between the bar and the parents and the boys that made a mess out of this. We all make mistakes we aren't proud of..the point is learning from those mistakes.

    You can tell by a few of the comments on here, who is suffering from White Guilt. Kind of funny.

    They will most likely be caught within a day or two. Fine them accordingly, maybe a little probation, depending on their previous records. End of story.

    And I could go along with the caning. 25 whacks or 10 years. Their choice. Their next offense would get them 50 whacks. Yes, I think that would be a great alternative.

    To davidk_at_unc: Would you be willing to let them out on probation and have them live at your house and be responsible for their actions? Robbery is robbery. At what point would you think they deserve jail? And yes, I don't have a problem with putting these 3 away for 10 years. That is a "good" expenditure of taxpayer money. That is the law.
