The heart wants what it wants. And in the case of Charlene Marie Ellet and her half-brother Beck, their hearts allegedly want meth and sweet taboo bangin' in motel bathrooms.
The saga unfolded last week when Montgomery County constables were dispatched to a Porter Walmart in response to a suspected shoplifting. After searching the couple's car, officers found a bag containing "a light bulb with burn marks and a cut pen with a crystal substance on it," according to the Montgomery County Police Reporter.
"When they arrived back at the [loss prevention] office, both were placed in adjoining cells," the story continues. "As deputies worked on the booking reports, they witnessed Beck and Ellet kissing each other on the lips through the bars."
"Ellet was then removed and taken back to another office and questioned about the strange relationship," according to the story. "She told them she was adopted and had the same biological mother but a different father. She stated that Beck had been in prison and they had been writing each other. He was released in November of last year."

Apparently super-interested in the details of the couple's sex life, officers pried the following information out of Ellet, per the story: "She admitted to being involved in a sexual relationship with her brother since his release. The couple were staying in a motel with Ellet's twin two-year-old kids, and Ellet allegedly "explained that the room had a partition and the children would stay on the other side of the partition when she and her brother had sex. Other times she and her brother would just go to the bathroom."
The star-crossed lovers are charged with possession of a controlled substance and prohibited sexual conduct.
