Newlyweds charged: shoplifted supplies for wedding reception

 Pennsylvania - A newlywed couple is accused of stealing more than $1,000 worth of merchandise from  Wegmans that police say they intended to use at their wedding reception later that afternoon. The value of the stolen items totaled $1,049.26, police said. Arthur Phillips III, 32, and Brittany M. Lurch, 22, both of Centre Hall, married Aug. 18, and scheduled their wedding reception for 5:30 p.m. But at 2:30 p.m., Patton Township police were called to Wegmans in the Colonnade shopping center for a report of a retail theft. They watched the couple on surveillance camers put items in their shopping cart, and walk out to their car without paying. The couple didn’t make it to the reception. Charged with retail theft and receiving stolen property, both misdemeanors, Phillips and Lurch remain in Centre County jail in lieu of $2,500 bail.  More
