Siblings Amanda Larrivee, 30 and Robert Larrivee, 38, were jailed Sunday after they told officers they were having sex in a bathroom after they were allegedly caught trying to steal a television from a local bar.
According to police, a woman was using the restroom at Samuel’s Sports Bar in Springfield when she heard a man and a woman attempting to tear a television off the wall while she was inside the stall.
Police say the woman fled the bathroom and notified the bar manager – who then locked the brother-sister pair inside the bathroom before calling police.
When officers arrived on the scene, Amanda and Robert Larrivee claimed that they were merely having sex inside the bathroom and denied attempting to steal a television.
Robert Larrivee then allegedly threatened to “beat up” the arresting officer.
Investigators found two televisions that had been torn off the walls in both the womens’ and mens’ restrooms.
The Larrivees were booked into jail and charged with larceny over $250. Robert Larrivee was also charged with threat to commit a crime.
