2 Florida men accused of stealing utility pole

- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office arrested two men on Wednesday morning, accused of stealing a Jacksonville Electric Authority utility pole.

Deputies stopped the pair along Wonderwood Drive in a Kia Sorento, with the utility pole tied-down atop the vehicle.  Authorities indicated that a tip led to the arrests. 

"Citizen watching out and officers cleaning up = partnership," the agency tweeted, along with a photograph of the two shirtless men in handcuffs. 

The Florida Times-Union reports that the pole was retrieved by JEA officials, who valued it at $2,500.
