THEFT/ARREST: Edgewood -- Two Brooklyn, N.Y., men have been released on bond after being charged with entering the lot of a towing company and allegedly stealing property from various cars while attempting to remove their car which had been impounded earlier. The incident occurred Tuesday but reports were not available until Thursday. The men, along with an 11-year-old boy, were seen inside the lot by the owner of Tart's Towing in the 2900 block of Pulaski Highway Monday. The owner detained the trio, who were attempting to push their car through the gate, and called the police. Police said the car broke down on I-95 Monday and that its owner didn't have enough money to have it towed so police ordered it impounded. Following the arrests, police recovered property stolen from other cars on the lot. Charged with theft, trespassing and malicious destruction of property were Ben Kelly, 50, and Lee Spencer, 36, both of Brooklyn. The child, also from New York, was not charged and was released to his parents.
