DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – A couple apparently thought they were trapped inside a janitor’s closet at a local college for two days until police let them out.

There was only one problem, the door was unlocked the entire time.

John Arwood, 31, and Amber Campbell, 25, face trespassing charges, authorities said.

Campbell is also accused of violating her parole.

Human feces and copper scouring pads sometimes used to smoke crack were found inside the closet, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

The couple told police they were chased into the closet and after two days, Arwood called 911 from a cell phone.

    This story makes no sense. I don’t know if it was the writer or what but there has to be a reason why they thought they were stuck in a closet for 2 days. . . Could someone please clarify?

      I was pulled over on the evening of the 30th. I went to jail for driving on a suspended, and was in the same block as this guy. We went to first appearance handcuffed together and he told the judge the statements of witnesses were untrue. The judge then read the police report and the police said they simply opened the “locked” door. One stepped into the closet and opened it from the inside with no problem. They were on meth and smoking hard. Meth and crack had them trapped.
