State Police officials say they have arrested two men for making repeat visits to a Pinegrove Township residence and removing scrap metal and other items.

28 year-old Richard Thieme and 21 year-old Charles Alden are accused of making eighteen trips to the property on Old State Road and driving away with the items in a sport-utility vehicle.

Investigators say the men redeemed the scrap at a recycling center in exchange for more than 543 dollars in cash.  The pair are also accused of stealing a ladder and an antique fire hose estimated to be worth a combined $1250.

Police say Thieme and Alden were both charged with theft.  Bail information was not released.
