Florida Couple Spent Days In Unlocked Closet, Thought They Were Trapped: Cops


A pair of hapless accused trespassers spent two days in a closet, thinking they were trapped inside.

John Arwood and Amber Campbell told police that someone had chased them into the closet at Daytona State College's Marine and Environmental Science Center on Sunday. Once they were inside the janitor's closet, they couldn't get out.

But it wasn't until Tuesday that Arwood decided to call 911. When Daytona Beach police arrived, they discovered that the door did not lock.

Cops found human feces and suspected drug paraphernalia in the closet, but they didn't find any drugs.

Arwood and Campbell were both charged with trespassing. Campbell was also charged with violating her probation.

In 2013, she was arrested after escaping a mental health treatment facility, crashing a car and escaping from the back of a police cruiser.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Arwood's record includes five jail sentences in Florida since 2000, with offenses including armed burglary, possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana, and fleeing law enforcement.
