An elderly Massachusetts couple who were being sought by police for allegedly skipping out on several thousands of dollars in hotel bills have turned themselves in, MyFoxBoston.com reported.
Benjamin Wolff, 79, and Jane Wolff, 72, turned themselves into police in Concord, Mass., and were arraigned on Friday. The husband and wife were released on personal recognizance,MyFoxBoston reported.
In August, the Wolffs stayed at the Hawthorne Inn in Concord for 19 days while they reportedly said they were in between moving houses.
The inn's owners, Gregory Burch and Marilyn Mudry, said the Wolff's check bounced and their credit card didn't work when it came time to pay their $3,600 bill. They called police but said the elderly couple had already left, according to MyFoxBoston.
“The last thing Ben said was, ‘Well, I'm good for it. I'm getting $20 million either today or tomorrow',” Mudry said, according to MyFoxBoston.
“I don’t believe them,” she said. “I think they were forced to turn themselves in. They probably saw themselves on TV, but I don’t trust them.”
The Wolffs also skipped out on their bill at a Newburyport, Mass. inn, police said.
