A Couple is Facing Felony Charges for Sneaking From One Movie into Another
Have you ever gone to the movies, and snuck into a SECOND movie after the first one ended? We have. And we will NOT do it again. Because apparently you can get charged with a FELONY.
On Saturday night, 49-year-old Lendsey Harbin of Gary, Indiana, and his wife, 40-year-old Delilha Harbin, went to see THE ROCK'S new movie "Snitch" at a theater in Portage, Indiana. After "Snitch" was over, the Harbins snuck into a different theater to watch the zombie movie "Warm Bodies".
But a security guard spotted them and called the cops. They were both arrested. And even though movie tickets at the theater only cost $6.75, both of them have been charged with a FELONY theft count.
Apparently in Indiana, ALL thefts are considered felonies, even for people like the Harbins without priors. They are facing six months to three years in prison. They say they were at a funeral all day on Saturday, and, "just were not thinking correctly".
