Two Topsail High School student athletes are in trouble with the law. Shawn Sidbury and Jeff Kath are each facing three charges of breaking and entering, larceny and possession of stolen goods.

Pender County Sheriff's detectives say the two worked together breaking in to a total of six homes, stealing property totaling about $6,500. When the two were caught, detectives say they were carrying guns they stole from one of those homes. Sidbury was a standout football player and Kath, a member of the basketball team.

"What they do now is going to affect them the rest of their life and its even worse when you see certain individuals with so much particular talent to get tied up in things like this,” said Pender County Sheriff Carson Smith.

The Topsail High School principal declined comment. Sidbury used to attend Hoggard High, and was expected to graduate from Topsail this year.

Pender County detectives say he was already on probation for a drug related charge.
