A bold group of Dutch ravers committed far from the perfect crime last weekend, hosting a secret rave in an under-construction police station in Amsterdam.

300 ravers attended the illicit party in the Zeeburg district, NME reports. "The building was practically full," according to police.

When they arrived, attendees reportedly climbed over fences flanking the police station, which surround the building in order to gain entry. A police department spokesperson also said that some revelers cut holes in the fences and caused damage.

Authorities confirmed that two people—a 19-year-old and a 20-year-old—were arrested on suspicion of organizing the rave, per NME. Police also seized the party's sound equipment and speakers.
