Charlene Ellet, 25, and her brother, Cameron Beck, 26, have been jailed after a simple shoplifting charge quickly escalated into meth and incest charges.
This came after the couple was caught kissing in jail.
According to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, Charlene Ellet was being detained for shoplifting inside the loss prevention office of a Porter, Texas Walmart when her brother Cameron came looking for her.
When deputies arrived at the store, they searched Beck's car and found a burnt lightbulb and a cut pen which tested positive for crystal meth.
At some point during the investigation, Ellet told deputies that Beck came looking for her because he was her brother.
The pair was arrested, transported to jail and placed into adjoining cells.
While deputies worked to complete paperwork required for the booking process, Ellet and Beck were caught kissing each other on the lips through the bars of their jail cells.
A deputy who saw the pair kissing separated the pair and interviewed Ellet individually about what had just transpired since they were supposedly related.
Ellet told deputies that she and Beck shared the same mother, but had different fathers.
She also stated that she had been writing to Beck while he was in prison until he was released last November.
She went on to say that she and Beck had been staying in a motel with her twin daughters and that all four of them slept in the same bed.
She also admitted to being involved in a sexual relationship with her brother since his release from prison.
When deputies questioned Ellet about what the kids were seeing, she explained that she and Beck had placed a partition in the room and that the children would stay on the other side of the partition when she and Beck slept with one another.
Other times, she and Beck would just go to the bathroom.
Ellet and Beck were booked into the Montgomery County Jail and charged with possession of a controlled substance and prohibited sexual conduct.
Ellet was additionally issued a citation for shoplifting under $50.
The two-year-old twin girls were released to Ellet's sister.
