Scrap Or Die: Two Brothers Steal A Bridge, Sell It For $5K

10.16.11 6 years ago 9 Comments

Two Pennsylvania men stole a whole bridge. Yes, a whole bridge.

Benjamin Arthur Jones, 24, and Alexander Williams Jones, 25, both of New Castle, Pa., used a blowtorch to dismantle seldom used Covert’s Crossing Bridge, a privately owned, 50-foot steel structure. Reportedly, the dastardly duo then attempted to scrap the 15.5 ton haul for $5,000 but the recycling company got suspicious and alerted the authorities. The Jones boys face felony charges of criminal mischief, theft, receiving stolen property and conspiracy.

With a story of this nature, no song matches it better than track 18 on Danny’s XXX album.
