May 13, 2008

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Three Ranson, W.Va., residents have been arrested following a West Virginia State Police investigation into several incidents in which property was sold, but money allegedly was not paid for the items.

Tina McDaniel, 45, her husband Jerry McDaniel, 44, and David McDaniel, 36, were charged, according to Jefferson County Magistrate Court records.

Tina McDaniel and David McDaniel were charged with conspiracy to commit fraudulent scheme and Jerry McDaniel was charged with five counts of fraudulent scheme, court records stated.

In one of the incidents, state police Trooper J.J. Phillips met with Linda Dunn, who said Jerry McDaniel and his brother David came to her farm around January last year and asked to purchase scrap metal and other property from her.


Dunn said after speaking with the brothers, they assured her they had a check coming to them for $30,000 and Jerry McDaniel wanted to start hauling the items immediately, said court records.

About $22,445 worth of property was removed from the property, said court records.

Dunn said her husband tried three times to get money for the property.

In another case, a man said the McDaniels purchased a John Deere tractor, two Ford trucks, a one-ton truck and other items but he did not receive payment, said court records.
