CENTRE HALL, Pa. (AP) — A couple of Pennsylvania newlyweds are behind bars after police say they were caught shoplifting food from a supermarket for their wedding reception.
The Centre Daily Times reports 32-year-old Arthur Phillips III and his bride, 22-year-old Brittany Lurch, were arrested Saturday after taking more than $1,000 in merchandise from a Wegmans supermarket in Centre Hall.
Patton Township police say the couple was captured on surveillance footage loading a shopping cart and leaving the store without paying.
Phillips and Lurch are each charged with misdemeanor counts and are being held on $2,500 bail.
It was no gag (or maybe it was) when a bag containing an estimated 35 pounds of human vomit was discovered outside a Pennsylvania retail store.
Radnor police said an employee at the Bed, Bath & Beyond store in Delaware County found the white trash bag containing the vomit in the parking lot approximately 10 parking rows from the store behind a tree, Radnor Patch reports.
The bag, found June 5, was the second discovered in the same spot. The first was found about a week earlier.
Radnor Township police are investigating, but added there haven’t been any similar incidents since then.
And there wasn’t even a Taco Bell nearby.
RADNOR, Pa. (AP/Patch) — Police say two men hoping to stage photos of an arrest locked themselves inside a Pennsylvania constable’s van and ended up getting arrested for real.
Radnor police tell the Philadelphia Daily News that 21-year-old Ryan Letchford and 22-year-old Jeffrey Olson were arrested early Saturday when another person called 911 to report the men were trapped.
The Marlton, N.J., men left a party and allegedly got into the van so they could take photos of themselves pretending to be arrested. Investigators say a friend discovered the men inside the van but couldn’t unlock it and called police.
When Constable Mike Connor let Olson and Letchford out of the van, the two men allegedly stated that they could not recall how they wound up inside the vehicle, according to Radnor Patch.
Both men were arraigned on charges of theft, public drunkenness and criminal mischief and posted bail. Phone listings for them could not immediately be located.
Police say a Pennsylvania woman was arrested Monday for violating a police order to cease contact with her ex-boyfriend, reports the Morning Call.
On Saturday around 2:30 a.m., 45-year-old Kimberly Bush sent a text to her ex. The text read “jerk,” according to the arrest affidavit obtained by the newspaper.
Normally, such a text message would not seem out of the ordinary between exes, but in this case, it left ex-boyfriend David Gosnell, Sr., a little spooked.
Police say that Gosnell was worried after receiving the text and that he felt Bush was lurking outside of his home that night, reports the Morning Call.
Just last Thursday, Bush, of Nazareth, was charged with entering Gosnell’s house unlawfully on June 4 to recover a DVD, according to the paper.
Bush was arraigned and released on $2,500 with the condition she would no longer contact Gosnell.
Texting him was a clear violation of that condition.
