Rossland couple face charges after faking sex to commit petty theft

Couple fakes the dirty to clean out a laundry

A Rossland couple went to a lot of effort last weekend to steal some small change.

Police say they were called to the 1500 block of Nickleplate Road in Rossland after receiving reports of a male and female having intercourse in the laundry room of an apartment building.

“It turned out intercourse was faked in order to clear people out of the laundry room so the male could steal change from the washing machines,” RCMP Sgt. Mike Wicentowich said Monday.

The couple was caught and theft charges are being pursued against both of them.

Police say both the male and female are known to them.

They will make their first appearance in Rossland provincial court in February.
