Two men have been arrested after they were accused of stealing the 50 foot steel Covert’s Crossing Bridge from North Beaver Township, Pennsylvania, using a torch.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the men were 24 and 25. They both face felony charges of criminal mischief, theft, receiving stolen property and conspiracy.
The bridge, in a secluded rural area, had been there since the early 1900′s and was estimated to be worth $100,000. It was privately owned and used only occasionally to transport material. After it was removed, workers were able to use a nearby road as an alternate route.
Locals claim that the bridge is haunted and on prom night a beautifully dressed woman can be seen on it. She’s going to be real confused this year when she discovers she’s materialized above a scrap yard.
