A man and a woman were arrested and face charges of third-degree criminal trespassing and conspiracy for sleeping overnight in a Chester County Target. And it was all part of a YouTube challenge, according to FOX 29 News Philadelphia.
Johnson Larose, 25, and Charlotte Fischer,24, also known on YouTube as “Saucey and Honey,” filmed their overnight stay for their YouTube channel.
On Monday, Feb. 21, West Whiteland Township Police responded to a tripped alarm in the Target but ultimately did not find anything when they searched.
Nevertheless, Target employees caught the couple wandering around the store on surveillance footage the next day.
While the couple wandered around with their phones out presumably filming for their YouTube channel, they did not take anything, according to police.
West Whiteland Township Police Detective Scott Pezick said, according to FOX 29 News Philadelphia, “It became a little bit bigger of an investigation, trying to find out what they were doing, was there something criminal?”
The challenge was called “24 Hour Overnight Challenge in Target.” The couple recorded their entire stay in the Tagert for their YouTube channel, which has over 17,000 followers.
While the couple hid in the Target by building a fort to stay after hours, they left around 3 a.m. and that’s when they tripped the alarm. They reportedly returned to resume filming at 8 a.m.
“When you go to burglary call you have a heightened sense of awareness. Suddenly, you see somebody in there or maybe they get spooked and run, our officers are well-trained, but it’s not a great situation for anybody,” Detective Pezick said, according to the Philly news outlet. “They weren’t out to harm anybody, but we want to make sure this doesn’t happen again.”
While the couple faces charges, they also aren’t allowed in any Target stores in Pa. Their bail was $25,000, and their next hearing will be on March 24. Though, they apparently have no regrets.
“I mean, no regrets just living life and having fun, it’s kind of sad that all of this came out of it, we were expecting a fine nothing crazy,” Fischer exlclaimed.
