NORWAY, Maine — A motel owner in southwestern Maine found one of his rented rooms had too many guests Saturday.
Andrew Coombs, who runs the Inn Town Motel in Norway, said he found three tarantulas and three spiders in a room when he went to collect payment from a guest, the Sun Journal of Lewiston reported.
Sean Schoomaker was evicted from the room, Coombs told the newspaper. His girlfriend, a woman identified only as Kyla, was also staying in the room.
“The guy had been here about 10 days,” Coombs said Tuesday. “Turns out he gave me a bogus number and address when he checked in. He said he was from Waterford, but I don’t even know where he’s really from.”
The arachnids were found in plastic cases, arranged throughout the room on stands and tables, the Sun Journal reported.
Andrew Coombs said Schoomaker and his girlfriend headed to Lewiston to find a place to stay.
“I booted him,” Coombs told the Sun Journal. “He must have snuck them all in at night. We never would have allowed that in our motel.
