Before the new owner of a home in Friendswood, Texas, could even hook up the appliances, an entirely different kind of hookup apparently took place inside. At least, that's how it appears after the real estate agent who sold the property was arrested for allegedly having sex inside the home the day after the closing, the Houston Chronicle reports. Kayla Marisa Seloff, 22, and Joshua Gene Leal, 27, were arrested early Saturday after a neighbor heading to work reported seeing two people enter the vacant home, then flashes of light from inside, CW39 reports. Police say that when they showed up, they peeked into a window and saw Seloff and Leal on the floor in one of the rooms and that the two initially tried to hide as officers gained entrance.

Eventually the pair emerged to talk with police, who say Seloff at first tried to pass off the home as hers, claiming Leal as her husband and the home as their own recently purchased abode. But when cops asked for proof, Seloff came up short and confessed to being the home seller, not the home dweller. The actual new owner said Seloff wasn't allowed to be there and agreed to charges for both for criminal trespass. It's not clear if Seloff was charged for the marijuana pipe and small stash of pot cops say they found in her car when she went to get her ID.
