(CBS/AP) YORK, Pa. - A couple of tools were stolen from a central Pennsylvania home recently.

Actually, you could use the same word to describe the thieves who stole them, too.

Police say two people swiped tools from a home in West York...then unwittingly tried to sell them back to their owner at his place of employment.

Police say the victim was approached by two people at a service center March 24 trying to sell him some tools. The victim thought the toolbox looked familiar. When he went home, he discovered he'd been robbed.

Police tell The York Dispatch they soon arrested 34-year-old Cody Lee Littrell, of Hanover, and 32-year-old Rebecca Erinn Dice, of Dillsburg. Both face charges including theft and receiving stolen property.

Littrell is free on bail. Dice remains behind bars.

Allegedly a couple of tools in their own right.
