SDSU fraternity brothers caught stealing dozens of sheets from local hotel for toga party

SAN DIEGO - Members from a San Diego State University fraternity ended up in handcuffs after stealing bed sheets from a local hotel as part of prank.

The students told police that they needed the sheets for a toga party they were throwing.

"They came in asking for sheets for a fundraiser to give to the homeless," said Jennifer Villa, the desk worker at the Best Western Seven Seas in Mission Valley.

Villa said 15 minutes later one of her coworkers got a call from housekeeping to call the police.

The housekeepers caught two students from the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house in the hotel laundry room and locked them inside.

"They were scared," said Villa. "They were just saying sorry to the housekeepers because they stole the sheets."

Detectives handcuffed both students but never arrested anyone. No one from the hotel pressed charges.

10News tried contacting members from the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity but were told no comment. One fraternity member did say that the toga party was canceled.
