Springfield Police

A couple of siblings were allegedly trying to steal a television out of a Springfield, Mass. bar last weekend, but they didn't fess up to that crime. Instead, they claimed they weren't stealing, they were having sex.

Robert and Amanda Larrivee both entered the bathroom and were “ripping the television off the wall” when employees locked them in the room and called authorities.

That's when the Larrivee siblings used an excuse that probably nobody would have expected, saying they were simply getting it on.

Cops noted that a television had indeed been ripped out of the wall, and the pair were charged with larceny. To make matters worse, Robert Larrivee assaulted one of the arresting officers.

In Massachusetts, incest can carry a 20-year prison sentence, so they might want to change their story.
