(2007-03-19)
(WOUB) - Two men from the Carolinas are facing felony charges in Athens after police say they stole money out of parking meters this morning.

Athens Police say 26-year-old Roger Lee Bell of Bessemer City, NC and George Hodge of Clover, SC were seen taking money from parking meters in the Athens City garage just before 4 a.m.

The two were arrested a short time later with an undetermined amount of change on them.

Both are charged with felony counts of theft, possession of criminal tools and tampering with coin machines. They were scheduled to appear in Athens County Municipal Court this morning.

Bell is currently facing a charge of possession of criminal tools in Athens County Common Pleas Court for what police call a similar incident in September.
