The state police in New Castle, Pennsylvania arrested two men in connection with the theft of a bridge. That's right these guys weren't stealing copper wiring or copper plumbing--they stole a bridge!
Benjamin Jones and Alexander Jones, the police didn't mention whether they are related but we know know they have a common interest--bridge theft, were charged with criminal mischief, theft and receiving stolen property for removing a 40-foot by 15-foot steel bridge from a wooded area sometime in September, according to the Youngstown Vindicator.
Hello, no one notices two guys walking off with a 40-foot bridge. They have to brag about their hefty heist at the local watering hole to get arrested. Sure, its a crime to steal someone's 40-foot bridge but you have to give these guys some love for their ambition. The police better watch out in New Castle, if other criminals want to keep up with the Joneses--who knows someone might try to "steal" a bank rather than "rob" it.
