Josh Caddy and Billie Smedts, who play for Australian Football League side Geelong, were reported to police after they were seen attempting to break into a house while wearing balaclavas.

The pair had planned the break-in as a prank against fellow Geelong player Jackson Thurlow, but they were at the wrong address.

Caddy and Smedts were found in their car soon after the report and were arrested by police with guns drawn. The Geelong Advertiser reported the players were cautioned by police and no further action will be taken.

Caddy was quoted as saying, "me and Billie are both disappointed that we scared people in the community."
