DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – A couple, who thought they were trapped inside a janitor’s closet, has been arrested in Florida.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, 31-year-old John Arwood and 25-year-old Amber Campbell were arrested after they claimed they were locked inside a janitor’s closet for two days.

The couple told officers they were chased into the closet at Daytona State College on Sunday.

Two days later, Arwood called 911 from his cell phone.

After tracking his location, officers found the couple in the closet with human feces and copper scouring pads.

Authorities say the closet was unlocked the entire time because the door does not have the ability to lock.

Arwood and Cambell were charged with trespassing.
