KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - University of Tennessee police have arrested two Knoxville men in connection with a burglary at Neyland Stadium

Police announced Tuesday they had arrested 23-year-old David Battaly and 19-year-old Chaison Chambers. Lt. Mike Richardson said Wednesday that police are still seeking a third suspect.

Richardson said Battaly and Chambers are each facing two counts of burglary and one count of vandalism. Knox County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Martha Dooley said both men were being held at Knox County Detention Facility with bond set at $5,000 for each.

Police said the suspects entered the stadium Oct. 29 at about 11:50 p.m. by climbing over a fence. Once inside, they got to the skybox area through an unsecured elevator. Richardson said they damaged doors of individual skyboxes and stole mostly food and beverage items.
