Ain’t love grand?
A couple that celebrated its engagement at a Walmart with a $29.62 ring and a dramatic proposal over the PA system spent the night in separate jail cells after allegedly shoplifting sex toys.
Bay City authorities in Michigan arrested William Cornelius, Jr., 25, and Sheri Moore, his 20-year-old fiancee, on Dec. 30 after the couple allegedly stole a “Bride-to-Be” thong, an edible thong, oral sex candy and a vibrator from a Spencer’s shortly after leaving Walmart, according to the New York Daily News.
Investigators said Cornelius purchased the ring before popping the question, according to The Smoking Gun.
Surveillance footage shows Cornelius dropping to one knee as Moore says yes to the applause of their fellow customers.
No one was applauding at the Spencer’s. An employee called the Bay County Sheriff’s Department with a shoplifting complaint a short time after, MLive.com reports.
The two suspects fled the area before police arrived.
A woman later identified as Moore was apprehended near a Taco Bell. She was followed there by a Spencer’s employee, according to court records.
