Man Drove Stolen Car To Jail To Bail Out Brother Behind Bars For Stealing A Car

A Kansas man was driving a stolen car en route to post bail Friday morning for his older brother, who himself was driving a stolen car when arrested earlier that day.

The McCracken brothers--Eric, 36, and Keith, 32,--are behind bars in the Johnson County jail on assorted charges, including possession of stolen property, a felony. The Topeka residents are being held in lieu of $7500 bond (Keith) and $5000 bond (Eric).

According to cops, Keith was busted around 1:30 AM on November 29 for driving with a suspended license. Investigators subsequently determined that the 2007 Chevy Trailblazer Keith was driving was stolen.

Eric, behind the wheel of a hot 2015 Chevy Silverado, was nabbed around 6 AM that same day following a vehicle pursuit by a Holton Police Department officer. Holton is the county seat of Jackson County and home to the local jail.

The younger McCracken, cops say, was en route to post bail for his sibling. Eric (left) and Keith are pictured in the above mug shots.
