York, SC brothers who are serial shoplifters arrested again  On Monday afternoon, two sets of police officers converged from two directions toward guys under a tree on Maiden Lane in York. The tree gave shade when the heat hit 96 degrees. The shade did not last. The heat came in with handcuffs. The charges are shoplifting - again - for brothers Jerry and Anthony Kennedy, ages 61 and 59. One of them, Jerry, already has spent eight years in prison for shoplifting. That was not Jerry's first or only prison time for shoplifting or stealing. He has, State Law Enforcement Division records show, 18 convictions for property crimes. Younger brother Anthony has multiple convictions for property crimes, SLED records show, including shoplifting, forgery and writing fraudulent checks. He, too, has spent time in state prison for those convictions. These arrests - for allegedly stealing steaks, T-shirts, gun scopes and two cases of soda - could land the brothers back behind bars long enough to be cashing their Social Security checks at the prison store.
