Two Hudson Valley men burglarized the headquarters of Orange County Choppers, the motorcycle shop featured in the "American Chopper" television series, police said yesterday.
Joshua Aldrich, 28, and Daryl Newkirk, 38, both city of Newburgh residents, were arrested on Friday. They're each charged with felony third-degree burglary and fourth-degree grand larceny.
The chopper shop's new headquarters building off Route 17K in the town of Newburgh was burglarized some time between late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning, police said. The culprits made off with about $3,000-dollars worth of computers, phones and merchandise, according to authorities.
Aldrich and Newkirk were arraigned Friday and sent to the Orange County jail on $25,000 cash bail each.
