Does the family that steals together makes plea deals together?

Winter Haven police say a shoplifting suspect they arrested Wednesday had quite the excuse.

About 4 p.m., Brian Crume, 48, of Wisconsin was arrested after allegedly taking three packs of electronic wire from Walmart, 355 Cypress Gardens Blvd.

When asked why he took the wire, he told the officer he was going to sell it on the street to raise money to bail his wife out of jail.

His wife was arrested earlier Wednesday -- for shoplifting.
