PHOENIX — A man is facing charges in Phoenix after attempting to steal a locomotive in early November.

A Tuscon television station cites a Union Pacific representative saying that on Nov. 8 a 20-year-old man drew attention to himself after he broke into the cab of a locomotive located at Phoenix Yard and was found "blowing the horn and pushing buttons and moving levers."

Police officers removed the man when they arrived on the scene before he was able to begin moving the locomotive. He was released from jail on the same day of his arrest, and told officials that he had no prior interest in trains or employment history in the railroad industry.
