That Family That's Arrested Together Stays Together

It had to be a banner day at the Hartford (Connecticut) Police Department. They arrested two people for shoplifting and got two more in the bargain.

According to a story in the Hartford Courant (official motto: we taste great on buns), Elizabeth Russell, 45, and her 13-year-old daughter were arrested for shoplifting. Elizabeth and her daughter were caught stealing clothes and jewelry at Kohl's Department Store in Hartford.

So, like a good husband, Daryll (yes, that's how they spelled it) Russell showed up at the police station to bail the two out, and was promptly arrested for violating the conditions of his probation for burglary and larceny in Cheshire, Conn.

Then, like a good son, Jonathan Russell showed up at the police station to bail the three out, and was promptly arrested for violating the conditions of his probation for larceny and motor vehicle case in Southington, Conn.

"I don't ever recall having four related people in lockup at the same time," Lt. Brian Mullins, told the Courant. "It's pretty unusual."

"They both said they were surprised when we told them of the warrants," Mullins said.

Everyone but Daryll was then able to post bail and were released. But he was forced to spend the night in jail, was arraigned the next day, and had bail set at $50,000.
