2 Arrested For Stealing Beef Jerky To Fund Trip

By: Trina Orlando

SOMERSET (KDKA) – Two men are accused of stealing beef jerky and trying to sell it to fund a road trip.

Michael Graham, 37, and John Barry, 35, both of Milton, W. Va., were arrested during a traffic stop Wednesday in Somerset.

Police stopped the men because their Ohio license plate was not securely fastened.

During the traffic stop, police noticed a large amount of beef jerky in the car along with multiple Car Kraft socket sets.

Graham allegedly told police that Barry’s sister and her husband had been visiting them in West Virginia. They called for help when their car broke down in New Stanton on the way home.

Graham and Barry allegedly stole the jerky and socket sets from various gas stations and auto parts stores in Somerset. They were allegedly attempting to sell the items to fund their trip.

The two are being held in the Somerset County Prison on $20,000 bond.
