Home Depot Shed Sex

AUGUST 29--A South Carolina couple was arrested yesterday for having sex inside a display shed at a Home Depot, police report.

Emily Craig, 20, and Shaun Bowden, 31, were nabbed after cops were called to the store in North Charleston around 8:40 AM.

Officers were dispatched to the business “in reference to an male and female entering a display shed on the property, closing the door behind themselves and remaining inside,” according to a North Charleston Police Department report.

An inspection of the outdoor sheds turned up Craig and Bowden. Craig, cops noted, was “partially clothed; the top of her dress was untied, hanging at her waist.” Bowden was shirtless and “had his pants down near his knees; his penis was exposed.”

During subsequent questioning of the duo, “it became apparent that they were engaged in sexual intercourse within the shed.”

Craig and Bowden, seen in the above mug shots, were each arrested for disorderly conduct. Bowden was also hit with an indecent exposure count for “having his genitals within public view". Additionally, Craig was charged with providing false information for initially giving officers an incorrect name.

The duo was booked into the county jail, where bond has yet to be set. Craig and Bowden are scheduled for a September 19 court appearance. (1 page)
