SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Two South Texas brothers have been charged with stealing about $120,000 worth of vehicle batteries from a warehouse.

Bexar County jail records show 26-year-old Justin Harris and 28-year-old Christopher Harris were being held Wednesday on felony theft charges. The investigation involves more than 700 vehicle batteries stolen Dec. 1 from Exide Technologies in San Antonio.

Justin Harris faces one theft count with bond set at $20,000. Christopher Harris faces two counts and his bond is $35,000.

Online jail records did not list attorneys for the men, who were arrested Tuesday night at a San Antonio apartment complex. Police say a tip helped lead to the brothers and the stolen property.
