A night of fun at a Target store in Pennsylvania has seen YouTubers “Saucy and Honey” face criminal charges that could carry up to seven years in prison.
West Whiteland Township Police say Johnson Larose, 25, and Charlotte Fischer, 24, were arrested after they hid at a Target store in Chester County on February 21 and shared the encounter for their social media channel had filmed.
Officers were called to the scene because of an alarm that had gone off. They searched the building but found no one.
“The next day, police say Target employees found surveillance video showing a man and woman wandering the store for hours with their phones turned off. The intruders didn’t take anything during their time in the store.” FOX 29 Philadelphia reported.
“It became a slightly larger investigation to find out what they were doing. Was there anything criminal?” said Police Detective Scott Pezick.
The couple documented the “24 Hour Night Challenge in Target‘ on her page for her 17,800 subscribers. The nearly 26-minute video shows the couple building a fort to hide behind when the store closed, then wandering aimlessly.
The two claimed they stayed at the finish line all night, but police say they went through an emergency exit around 3am, which set off the alarm. They returned to the store around 8am to continue the video.
The situation, which could have ended very differently, drained the resources of the police and Target.
“When you go to the burglar call, you have heightened awareness. All of a sudden you see someone in there, or maybe they get startled and run, our officers are well trained, but it’s not a great situation for anyone,” Detective Pezick said. “They didn’t mean to harm anyone, but we want to make sure something like this doesn’t happen again.”
Authorities say Larose and Fischer face third-degree trespassing charges. They were released on $25,000 unsecured bail and banned from Target stores throughout Keystone state. They are expected to appear in court again on March 24th.
“I mean no regrets just living life and having fun, it’s kind of sad that all of this came out of this, we weren’t expecting anything crazy,” Fischer told FOX 29.
