NEW CASTLE — Two men were arrested after they were seen dismantling an air conditioning unit at the former Hoss’ restaurant.

Jeremiah G. Baker, 32, of 815 N. Ashland Ave., and Steven P. Coast, 20, of 1146 Lakewood-Neshannock Falls Road, Volant, are charged with theft, attempted theft, criminal conspiracy to commit theft and criminal mischief.

Neshannock police said the men were seen around 1:30 p.m. Nov. 5 trying to take apart a commercial, roof-mounted air conditioning unit from the former restaurant at 2409 Wilmington Road.

Police said they contacted the property owner who told them no one had permission to remove anything from the building.

Both were arraigned before District Judge Scott McGrath who set each of their bonds at $2,500. Baker posted bail and was released.

Coast remains in the Lawrence County jail.
