TAYLORSVILLE — A man and woman who walked into an unlocked Taylorsville home, spent time watching TV, taking showers and drinking hot chocolate.
Police were later able to track them down and arrest them through a 7-Eleven receipt they left behind.
The pair was charged Monday with criminal trespass, a class A misdemeanor, for the Nov. 8 incident at a home near 3700 West and 5200 South. Police say the man entered the house through an unlocked side door, then let his companion in through the front door.
The pair, who live in Taylorsville, is not accused of stealing anything, but police say their activities were uncovered when a remodeling worker told the homeowner that some carpet had been stolen. A 7-Eleven bag with a receipt inside was also discovered.
Police traced the woman through the receipt, which was drawn on her Utah Horizon EBT card, charges filed in 3rd District Court state. The woman, 26, and the man, 39, both admitted to police that after going to the convenience store, they both entered the home and relaxed.
