On December 20, troopers were advised of a theft of car parts from a garage on Croft Street in the Town of Nanticoke. An investigation determined that Carpenter had stolen two car radiators and three car batteries with an estimated value of $500.

Police say he then tried to sell it as scrap metal at the Weitsman Scrap Yard in Binghamton but was denied. Carpenter was arraigned in the Town of Nanticoke court and was remanded to the Broome County court in lieu of $1,000 cash bail or $2,000 property
