Des Moines, Iowa (The Weekly Vice) - Shantel Morrison, 31, and her boyfriend Joshua Pray,30, were arrested Wednesday after they went out for the night, got hammered and then returned home....... someone else's home, that is.
According to Des Moines police, Morrison and Pray were so intoxicated when the headed home from a night on the town, they were apparently unable to tell their home apart from a neighbor's home..... a neighbor who lives two blocks away from them.
Javier Pagannazario, 29, and his wife Genoveva were awaken before dawn Sunday after hearing footsteps in an upstairs room of their home. When Javier investigated the noise, he found Pray asleep on the couch. Upon discovery, Pray reportedly jumped up and ran out of the house through the front door.
Meanwhile, Genoveva found Morrison partially undressed downstairs. Upon discovery, Morrison reportedly fled from the home through it's backdoor. The couple then made their way to a van parked in the driveway and drove off.
The homeowners were able to provide police with the couple's license plate number, which led to their arrest.
The couple later told police they were simply too intoxicated to recognize the house they were in, however the homeowner's aren't buying the story. Pagannazario told police he later noticed $900 missing from his wallet.
Morrison and Pray were booked into the Polk County Jail on charges of second-degree burglary.
