Centre Hall - A couple of Pennsylvania newlyweds are behind bars after police say they were caught shoplifting food from a supermarket for their wedding reception.

The Centre Daily Times reports 32-year-old Arthur Phillips III and his bride, 22-year-old Brittany Lurch, were arrested on Saturday after taking more than $1 000 in merchandise from a supermarket in the town of State College.

Patton Township police say the couple was captured on surveillance footage loading a shopping cart and leaving the store without paying.

The newspaper says the couple admitted taking the items when arrested. Police say the newlyweds told officers they'd been married a couple days earlier and took the food for their wedding reception that afternoon.

Phillips and Lurch are each charged with misdemeanor counts and are being held on $2 500 bail.
