Police in The Colony, Texas, have offered their thanks to three students over a botched prank.

The Colony Police Department said on Facebook Monday that it wanted “to thank the three students from the class of 2018 for their generous donation of toilet paper and eggs for breakfast.” The security system at The Colony High School records surveillance footage, leading to the authorities being tipped off, The Dallas Morning News reported.
