W.Va. man charged with grand larceny
CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - A Martinsburg, W.Va., man was arrested Saturday following the theft of a vehicle from a church in Charles Town and the sounding of an alarm at an 84 Lumber store in Berkeley County, court records said.
The string of incidents started when 911 dispatchers received a call about an alarm at an 84 Lumber store along W.Va. 9 east of Martinsburg about 3:47 a.m. Saturday, according to Jefferson County Magistrate Court records.
A West Virginia State Police trooper arrived, climbed over a fence into the lumber yard and spotted a man crawling out of a large sliding door, court records said.
The trooper obtained a statement from the man in which he said he had entered the building and was looking for money, court records said. The trooper also questioned the man about a white minivan parked at the Britt-Getty Law Offices next door, court records said.
