Dad Breaks Leg While Trying to Prevent Son and His Friend from Stealing Truck

Two Jefferson County men have been indicted by a grand jury for the theft of a pickup in Crestwood. The second man was also indicted for assault.

The St. Louis County grand jury indicted a Jefferson County man on Dec. 5 for stealing his father’s pickup truck, while his friend was indicted for stealing the truck and second-degree assault.

St. Louis County prosecutors said the two men, Nicholas Doane, 19, of the first block of Wampler in Jefferson County near Arnold, and Anthony Passiglia, Anthony Passiglia, 28, of Arnold, stole Doane’s father’s truck on Oct. 5.

Doane’s father used a cell phone app to track the truck to a Kohl’s department store parking lot in Crestwood, where he confronted the two men and demanded his truck back.

Passiglia jumped in the truck and began driving off as the owner was holding onto the door handle, and the victim fell and broke his leg, according to a Crestwood Police reports. Passiglia backed up and let Nicholas Doane in the truck, and the two men drove off, leaving him in the parking lot.

Doane and Passiglia are being held in St. Louis County jail. Bail was set at $15,000 for Doane and $25,000 for Passiglia.
