Police in Charlotte County say two Port Charlotte men stole a pair of chainsaws…then tried to sell them back to the victim.

Saturday night, a man told officers two chainsaws had been stolen from a toolbox.

He then sent a text to his neighbor and asked if he had seen anything, and told 36-year old Rustin Rodgers he was offering a reward. Rodgers then sent a text back with a picture of the tools, and demanded $1,000.

The victim called police- Rodgers and Mario Miller now face charges.
