Here is a classic case why drugs are bad, a Florida man and woman spent two days trapped in what they thought was a locked closet — until police showed up to let them out and discovered that the door was actually never locked.

John Arwood, 31, and Amber Campbell, 25, were told police  they were chased into a janitor’s closet at Daytona State College in Daytona Beach, Fla., by unidentified assailants on Sunday, according to the Daytona Beach Police Department’s report.

The pair waited two days in the closet before calling 911.

Police officers found the couple in the Marine and Environmental Science Center on Dec. 30.

After they opened the door for the woman and man, a police officer checked if the door would lock on the inside.

An officer went into the closet, closed the door and found it had, in fact, been unlocked the whole time.

Police said they found human feces and a scouring pad in the closet, the latter of which is commonly used to smoke crack cocaine. No drugs were found.

Arwood and Campbell were charged with trespassing. Campbell was also charged with violating her probation.
