Nominate West Virginia Lock Up in the Best New and Best Law Blogs

The 2009 Weblog Awards
Whoever happens to stop by this blog may wonder why I started it. Whenever I read news stories online I always like to put a face to the story. So I got to thinking maybe other people would as well. I always keep up on WV news and most stories don't have the mugshots with them so I hunt them up online and post them with the story. It's not that hard and I don't know why the state news sites don't do it

2 caught for B&E

A break-in at a West Side home led to the arrest of two Charleston men.

Charleston patrolmen D.C. Goffreda and N.S. Simms were dispatched Monday evening to investigate a breaking-and-entering complaint at a vacant home on Sixth Street that was being used as a storage space.

Officers said when they arrived on the scene they spotted two men who started to run, according to a complaint filed in Kanawha Magistrate Court.

The two ran west on Sixth Street, north on Florida Street and then crossed a set of railroad tracks to Sixth Avenue, where they were apprehended, police said.

Police identified them as Christopher Daniel Sargent, 21, of Grant Street and Christopher Scott Murvine, 19, of Monroe Street.

Sargent told officers he and Murvine had broken into the house through the back door to "steal what they could find in it," according to the complaint.

Police said Sargent told them they had just left the house and locked the door behind them when they heard a neighbor outside calling the police.

The two have been charged with felony breaking and entering and fleeing. Both are being held at South Central Regional Jail.
