Men Stopped in Pennsylvania with Carload of Stolen Jerky
SOMERSET, Pa. (AP) — Two West Virginia cousins have been jailed after Pennsylvania State Police say they were stopped with a carload of stolen beef jerky and tool sets the men were selling for gas money.
Online court records do not list defense attorneys for 37-year-old Michael Graham and 35-year-old John Barry, both of Milton, W.Va. They were pulled over in Somerset, Pa. Wednesday evening because their license plate was dangling from their car.
Police say in an affidavit they saw "a large amount of boxed and packaged beef jerky" and socket sets on the car's rear seat. Police say the cousins acknowledged stealing the items from auto parts stores and gas stations — and were trying to sell the items for gas money to get to Westmoreland County. They face a preliminary hearing Feb. 22 on charges including receiving stolen property.
