2 western Pa. men jailed in 'test drive' thefts
MONACA, Pa. (AP) - August 7, 2012 (WPVI) -- Two western Pennsylvania men have been jailed on charges that they twice stole vehicles while taking them on "test drives" from car dealers.
The public defenders for 70-year-old Leamond Black and 40-year-old Christopher Mitchell could not immediately be reached for comment on the charges reported Tuesday by the Beaver County Times.
Monaca police say the Darlington Township duo took a 2001 GMC Jimmy sport-utility vehicle for a test drive at Monaca Auto Sales on July 25 and never returned. Police found them six days later inside the vehicle in a supermarket parking lot.
The men allegedly did the same thing at Power's Auto Sales in Rochester Township on July 17, only to have police find the vehicle abandoned in Pittsburgh with a stolen Ohio license plate.
Both men remained in the Beaver County Jail on Tuesday.
