The pair reportedly took a tour of a hotel wine cellar before the husband sneaked back in to steal 45 bottles of wine!

"After using a previously purloined master key to gain access, he emerged with three large rucksacks — one on his back and two in each hand — which held the bottles he had stashed, and which were stuffed with hotel towels to protect the bottles," police said.
