Newlyweds shoplifted for their reception food

A Pennsylvania newlyweds couple are in jail after they were caught shoplifting food from a supermarket for their wedding reception.

32-year-old Arthur Phillips III and his bride, 22-year-old Brittany Lurch, (above photo) were arrested Saturday after taking more than $1,000 in merchandise from a Wegmans supermarket.

The lovely couple were caught on surveillance footage loading a shopping cart and leaving the store without paying.

The couple admitted taking the items when arrested, telling officers they'd been married a couple days earlier and took the food for their wedding reception that afternoon.

They are charged with misdemeanor counts and are being held on $2,500 bail.
