NEW CASTLE, Pa. (AP) - Two brothers have been charged with stealing a western Pennsylvania bridge and selling the 15 1/2 tons of scrap metal for more than $5,000.

Police say 24-year-old Benjamin Arthur Jones and 25-year-old Alexander Williams Jones of New Castle used a blowtorch to break up the bridge in late September or early October. They face felony charges of criminal mischief, theft, receiving stolen property and conspiracy.

Yeah, I wonder if it was one of the many unused Norfolk Southern bridges. Western PA is dotted with them.

We're getting about 20 cents a pound for scrap steel. These guys should've shopped around better.

Two brothers have been charged
At least they are reporting the race this time.

Though I doubt they used a blowtorch as reported, most likely a propane/oxygen torch.
