Jan 14, 2007 — Four men were arrested and charged with the burglary of a Rutter's Farm Store after state police spotted a large safe in the back of a van stopped during a routine traffic stop Friday morning.
Tyrone Clark, 31, Edward Kinnebrew, 26, David Haynes, 29, and Gregory Giddings, 25, all of Philadelphia, were committed to York County Prison on $250,000 bail on charges of burglary, theft, receiving stolen property and conspiracy.

The men were arrested 3 a.m. Friday when Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Brian Tokar and Cpl. Wesley Van Wyk stopped a van for a traffic violation along Interstate 83, near the Pennsylvania Turnpike exit.

During the stop, a trooper spotted a large safe and numerous cartons of cigarettes in the back of the vehicle.

The driver ran from the vehicle when questioned by police and was apprehended after a short foot chase. The three remaining suspects were taken into custody.

State police later discovered the suspects were wanted in West Manchester Township for the robbery of the Rutter's Farm Store in the 2000 block of Carlisle Road, according to police. The items in the van were later identified as having come from Rutter's.

The items were valued at more than $10,000, according to police. Numerous burglary tools were also found inside the van, police say.
