Police arrested two men after a truck was broken into at Porter Roofing Company on E. 3rd Street.
Steven Evett, 32, of 1410 E. 49th St., was charged with criminal trespassing, criminal conspiracy and possession of burglary tools.
Steven Anderson, 32, of 1519 E. 47th St., was charged with criminal conspiracy and possession of burglary tools.
In the incident on Monday, police were dispatched to a theft in progress. A witness said a red truck with two white males had just left the scene. He said one of the men - with red hair - jumped a fence and was trying to break into a truck.
The tag on the vehicle came back to a black Toyota, but an officer spotted the red truck and stopped it. The witness identified the truck and the man with the red hair.
Jeff Porter said the truck was damaged in several places, including the side mirror.
Evett admitted jumping the fence. He said he was going after the mirror, saying he had a buyer for it.
He said he was not trying to steal tools because he "knew there ain't no tools in them trucks."
Police said there were several burglary tools in the truck.
Evett appeared in Criminal Court earlier this year and pleaded guilty to several burglaries. He got a six-year sentence on one and two-year on another. All sentences were suspended. He was in the courtroom of Judge Don Poole.
