By Scott Engle: Friday afternoon Montgomery County Precinct 4 Deputy Constables were dispatched to the Porter Wal-Mart in reference to a shoplifter. When they arrived Loss Prevention officers directed them to their office where they had Charlene Marie Ellet detained for shoplifting. Ellet told deputies her brother Cameron Beck, age 26, had driven her to Wal-Mart along with her two 2-year-old twins. A short time later Beck appeared at the Loss Prevention Office looking for his sister.
Deputies then went to the vehicle and after getting consent searched it. Inside they found a backpack with a bag inside it, Inside the bag were a light bulb with burn marks and a cut pen with a crystal substance on it. That material tested positive for Methamphetamine. Ellet admitted she and Beck had smoked the meth approximately two weeks prior.
Both were places in custody for possession of a controlled substance. It was at that point Beck asked if they could just charge his sister as she had a clean record.
In addition Ellet was issued a citation for shoplifting under $50.
When they arrived back at the office both were placed in adjoining cells. As deputies worked on the booking reports they witnessed Beck and Ellet kissing each other on the lips through the bars. One of the deputies questioned what they had told them earlier about being brother and sister and Ellet admitted they were.
Ellet was then removed and taken back to another office and questioned about the strange relationship. 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.
She also stated that they had been staying in a motel and her, Beck and the twin girls were sleeping in the same bed. She admitted to being involved in a sexual relationship with her brother since his release.
She 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 children were released to Ellet’s sister.
Ellet and Beck were both placed in the Montgomery County Jail for possession of controlled substance and prohibited sexual conduct.
