Is there really that much difference between a car alarm and your average Skrillex track anyway?

Two young men were arrested in Doral on Wednesday for stealing from cars. They later admitted they planned to sell the stolen items in order to buy Ultra tickets.

According to El Nuevo Herald, Enrique Miguel Ponimansky, 20 of Hialeah, and Michael Torres, 19 of Doral, were cuffed in the early hours of Wednesday morning. The pair were targeting cars that had been unlocked.

"They told the sergeant that caught them that they were going to sell the stolen items to buy tickets for the Ultra Festival," Joe Seiglie from Doral Police told the paper.

Police later found cell phones, watches, a GPS and some pot in Ponimansky's 1998 Toyota Camry.
