While talking to deputies, the female suspect told them that she had called 911 to have law enforcement help them move their belongings from the house.They also wanted to get a ride to the airport so they could spend the weekend in New York, the sheriff’s office said.

“Deputies DID help them with their belongings, and DID give them a ride, but it wasn’t to the airport … it was to the Polk Pokey,” the sheriff’s office said in a Facebook post.

According to the sheriff’s office, the male suspect was charged with burglary and theft related to the store and also burglary of a residence. The female suspect was charged with burglary of a residence.
