The thirst is so very real. Two Houston teens—19-year-old John Grant and an unidentified 16-year-old—were arrested for allegedly cutting a hole in the ceiling of the Greenspoint Mall to steal 16 pairs of Jordans from Footaction USA. Another suspect managed to escape, but local authorities believe they have identified him.

Because he's over 18, Grant was taken to the Harris County Sheriff's Office and booked on charges for burglary of a building. We don't care how much you love Jordans, there's no need for these high-profile heist tactics. You'd think they were trying to steal a diamond or something.
