What’s the best way to fix a flat tire? Steal a new one, of course.

That’s what Brick police say two men did after their tire went flat Monday near Brick Boulevard on Monday. According to Sgt. Neal Pedersen, officers took a report of a vehicle burglary at 3:15 a.m. in the Lion’s Head North community in which the trunk of a Hyundai Sonata was broken into and the spare tire taken.

A short time later, Pedersen said, Officer Mark Catalina came upon three men changing a tire in the parking lot of the Wawa store on Brick Boulevard. He investigated, and discovered that they men had developed a flat tire near the convenience store, then went on the hunt to steal a tire that would replace the one that went flat.

“It was at this point that two of the subjects walked into the Lions Head North community where they began searching for a vehicle similar to theirs so they could obtain a tire,” Pedersen said. “When they located a similar vehicle to theirs they entered the trunk of the vehicle and removed the spare tire.”

Two of the men – Jasheir Powell and Quadirah Booker – both of Lakewood, were charged with burglary and theft. Powell also had an outstanding warrant for his arrest from Howell for $100 and Booker had an outstanding warrant for $500 from Brick, Pedersen said.

A third suspect, Toraya Evans, of Lakewood – who apparently waited with the vehicle at Wawa while the other two went to steal the tire – was arrested for an outstanding warrant from Wall Township for $500.

Photos of the three suspects were not available.

    Jasheir, Quadirah, and Toraya. How do they come up with these idiotic, made-up ghetto names?

    A race of people who are accountable to no one for nothing. Time to separate….separate but equal.

    Seriously? Wonder what that “free” tire is going to cost these idiots…
