Men accused of stealing tires from Clearwater shop

CLEARWATER — Police arrested two St. Petersburg men Tuesday night after officers said they confessed to snatching tires from Uncle's Tire Shop in the 1500 block of Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard.

David Lee Wilson, 26, and Paul A. Patrick, 50, were booked into the Pinellas County Jail on multiple burglary charges, according to reports. Evidence linked the men to two other tire thefts at the same location in August, police said.

A Clearwater officer patrolling the area around 10 p.m. saw a red 1995 Ford F150 pickup truck that police had previously connected to past burglaries at the same shop. When the officer stopped the truck, Wilson and Patrick were inside and confessed to stealing the tires, police said.

Wilson and Patrick were released from jail Tuesday night after they each paid a $5,000 bond.

    It didn't end up being a touchdown, but one of the Bucs' biggest hustle plays in Thursday's win over Jacksonville saw receiver Adam Humphries scoop up a loose ball just before halftime, after what looked like an incompletion but was correctly ruled a Jameis Winston fumble.
