Don’t Mess with the Towing Company

Four men were arrested for allegedly stealing a car after it was towed.

Four men turned themselves into Radnor police earlier this month on charges that they had stolen a car that belonged to one of the men from a towing impound lot.

According to police, David Kelly, 24, of Hatfield; Joseph Brennecke, 23, of Paoli; Steven Rosso, 23, of Paoli and Tim Spear, 25 of Landenberg are facing numerous charges, which according to Main Line Media News, includes burglary, criminal trespassing, theft, receiving stolen property, criminal mischief and related charges.

Police report that the car belonged to Kelly’s brother, and the vehicle (a 13-year-old Dodge) had been towed from an apartment complex in Paoli because it did not have a complex parking sticker.

When one of the men called the towing company, he was told the lot was closed and the car could be picked up in the morning.

However, this was not soon enough for the men.

The four allegedly went to the lot, took apart the fence, and moved two other cars that were blocking the Dodge.

While the feat could be considered impressive, the repercussions were probably not worth it.
