A UK couple have been arrested after they tried to steal everything in their hotel room. Laura and Christopher Barnett lodged at Morgans Hotel six months after their marriage for Christopher’s birthday, before trying to steal everything in their room, which included Egyptian cotton sheets, pillows, paintings and even the flat screen TV.
They were caught when the couple tried to argue their way out of a pay-per-view movie by saying their room didn’t have a TV. A staff was sent to go and check their room and met it almost empty. They were arrested and they later confessed to the crime.
Christopher was sentenced to 16 weeks in Jail, while Laura his wife was given one year community service.
