Two brothers from Manhasset have been charged with stealing a car from a Glen Head driveway on Sunday, Nassau County police said.
Twins Issac and Isaiah Brown, both 16, stole the 2017 Jeep after finding the key in the garage of the home, which they entered after finding the garage-door opener inside an unlocked car in the driveway, police said.
The pair drove to Westbury, where they picked up New Cassel resident Taylon Hill, 18, police said.
Hill then used a forged credit card to buy food and gas, police said.
A Nassau County patrol officer recognized the Jeep from a stolen-car report, but was unable to get the Jeep to stop, police said.
The Jeep was later found in a private driveway, and after a search, all three defendants were arrested at 10:25 p.m., police said.
The Brown brothers were each charged with burglary, grand larceny and possession of stolen property, police said.
Issac Brown was charged with three separate grand larcenies that occurred on Oct. 7, Oct. 9 and Oct. 13, police said. Police did not provide details about those incidents.
Hill was charged with possession of a forged device, possession of a forged instrument and unauthorized use of a vehicle, police said.
All three defendants were awaiting arraignment Monday in First District Court in Hempstead, police said.
