A man and a woman thought they were trapped in a Daytona State College closet until police let them out – and found out the two could have opened the door themselves.
The couple, John Arwood, 31, and Amber Campbell, 25, spent two days in the Marine and Environmental Science Center janitor's closet before calling police. They claimed they were chased into the closet by an unnamed man.
When police arrived, they found there was no lock on the door, and the couple could have opened it at any time. They also found human feces and copper scouring pads sometimes used to smoke crack, but no drugs.
Arwood and Campbell were charged with trespassing. Campbell was also charged with violating her probation, which she was given after resisting arrest in 2013.
