31-year-old John Arwood and 25-year-old Amber Campbell were charged with trespassing, according to Volusia County Corrections Department’s online inmate locator. Campbell is also accused of violating parole.

The pair told police they were chased into a closet in the college’s Marine and Environmental Science Center on Sunday, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

After two days in the closet, Arwood called 911 from a cell phone, police said.

When officers arrived, they found human feces and copper scouring pads sometimes used to smoke crack, according to the Sentinel, and also learned that the closet was unlocked the entire time because the door was unable to lock at all.

Officers said they did not find drugs in the closet.
