A newlywed couple in Pennsylvania is behind bars after police say they shoplifted food from a grocery store for their wedding reception.

Arthur Phillips III, 32, and Brittany M. Lurch, 22, were arrested Saturday after taking more than $1,000 in merchandise from a Wegmans supermarket in College Station, The Centre Daily Times reported.

The couple, who wed Aug. 18, were caught on surveillance footage loading a shopping cart and leaving the store without paying, Patton Township police said.

Police said the newlyweds told officers they took the food for their wedding reception that Saturday afternoon.

Both were charged with misdemeanor counts of retail theft and receiving stolen property and remain in jail on $2,500 bail.
