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

Teen charged with vandalism

WILLIAMSON, W.Va.- A Mingo County teenager faces charges in connection with the vandalism of a transformer that left nearly 5,000 customers without electricity for almost 24 hours.

West Virginia State Police charged 18-year-old Steven Spry of Verdunville on Monday with giving false information to an officer during the investigation.

American Electric Power has said someone shot a transformer in Dingess. Replacing the equipment cost about $1 million.

The shooting was among 20 acts of vandalism since Oct. 6 that targeted AEP equipment.

AEP is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest or conviction.
