Second man just accepted a ride, family says
Only one of the two young men arrested for vehicle theft in Ford City on Dec. 6 has been charged.
Nicholas Bryan Gentle is charged with auto theft and possession of a stolen vehicle.
He was scheduled to be in court for a pretrial hearing Thursday and his preliminary hearing is Friday.
A second suspect, Kamerun Hacker, was arrested with Gentle but was never charged in connection with the case, according to Kern County Superior Court records.
Family members said Hacker had simply accepted a ride from Gentle.
