BROOKVILLE, Pa. (EYT) – Brookville Borough Police say two men were arrested around 6:15 on April 27 in connection to a theft that occurred at Pyler’s Car Wash, in Brookville, Jefferson County.

According to police, 58-year-old Richard Lynn Daily, of Knoxville, TN, and 45-year-old Charles William Stevens of Maynardville, TN, were arrested for a theft from the change machine located at Pyler’s Car Wash located in Brookville Borough.

Police say Daily and Stevens were allegedly manipulating change machines and removing the money.

Through the use of video surveillance, police had a visual of the suspects and the vehicle they were traveling in, according to authorities.

An off-duty Brookville Police Officer, Officer Micky Stormer, saw the suspects in the parking lot of the TSA Truck Stop located on Allegheny Blvd. in Brookville.

The suspects were driving a green in color 1997 Ford Explorer with Tennessee registration.

According to Chief Dworek, Officer Stormer, who was already “off-duty, after finishing a 10-hour shift, in his own vehicle…follows the suspects onto I-80 and calls for help.”

Officer Stormer contacted the on-duty Brookville Police Officer, Officer Shawn Hollobaugh, and both officers were able to stop the suspects along I-80 East.

Brookville Police were assisted by the Pennsylvania State Police and Officer William Scheckler of Clarion Borough Police Department.

Both men were charged with Theft, Criminal Conspiracy, Possessing Instruments of a Crime, and other related charges.

They were placed in the Jefferson County Jail pending a formal arraignment.
