Two Pennsylvania men were arrested at about 3:45 a.m. Sunday morning for sneaking into Wrigley Field. They were able to squeeze through metal security bars and climb through a window before being found walking inside Wrigley Field by security, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Their objective was to steal ivy from the outfield walls, but the men were quickly spotted on video surveillance. Police found no evidence that anything was stolen or damaged in the building, said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli.

Two 25-year-olds, Kevin Burge and Steven Gudknecht, of Chalfont, Pa., were each charged with a misdemeanor count of criminal trespass to property and are due in court on Sept. 26, said Mirabelli.
