Police arrested two men in Shrewsbury Township Thursday morning for allegedly stealing scrap metal.
The men were captured when their vehicle got stuck in a field behind Penn Mar Recycling off Stone Arch Road in Shrewsbury Township, according to Southern Regional Police.
Mark Edward Kaminski, 19, of Bel Air, Md., and Tommy Lee Kimball, 20, with addresses in Bel Air and New Castle, Del., are free on $25,000 bail each, charged with burglary, criminal trespass, theft, receiving stolen property, possessing instruments of a crime, criminal mischief, and criminal conspiracy.
Southern Regional and state police were called to the property about 11:10 a.m. and found a tan Ford Explorer stuck in the field. Kaminski was hiding inside the SUV, covered by a tarp, police said; Kimball was captured as he was running from the area.
A large amount of scrap metal was found around the vehicle, and a small amount was spotted in plain view inside the SUV, police said. Also in the woods nearby police found several masks, latex gloves, bolt cutters, duct tape and other items.
Investigators later determined Kaminski and Kimball also burglarized the Penn Mar facility on Onion Boulevard in Shrewsbury Borough by cutting a hole in the back wall.
About $2,000 worth of scrap metal was taken during the burglary, police said.
