Two New Castle men were charged with multiple offenses after they were found at the scene of a burglary that used a sledgehammer.

At approximately 11:45 p.m., Tuesday, troopers were called to Aaron’s Furniture at 511 E. Basin Rd., New Castle after an alarm was activated.

Troopers found William Ramos, 55, at the rear of the business, standing next to hole that had been made with a sledgehammer.

Ramos was immediately taken into custody without incident. Troopers were also able to determine that there was a second subject, later identified as 53-year-old David Ramos, inside the business.
