These newlyweds didn't want to pay for a wedding reception----so they went shoplifting for the food and drink they needed, say police.
Brittany Lurch, 22, and Arthur Phillips, 32, were arrested after trying to walk out of a store in Patton Township, Pennsylvania, with goods valued at $1,049.26. The newlyweds, pictured in the above mug shots, were collared after wheeling the hot merchandise out of the store in two shopping carts to their waiting Hyundai.
Police sources say that the stolen goods included a shrimp platter ($115); two spiral hams ($70); a vegetable tray ($50); appetizer trays; eggs; a punch bowl; forks; spoons; soda; dinnerware for eight; turkey; toothbrushes; a polo shirt; and Gillette Fusion razor blades.
The newlyweds spent the first days of their honeymoon in the Centre County jail where they were booked on theft charges.
