An Eastern Kanawha County crime spree comes to an end.
Troopers arrested Kristina Griggs and Dustin Lycans for a rash of break-ins.
They say Griggs' 17 year old son is also involved.
Troopers say the trio stole 10 thousand dollars worth of cigarettes, condoms, a generator, guns, power tools and even a tanning bed.
Troopers say during widespread power outages, the three stole from homes, gas stations, cars and storage facilities in both Kanawha and Fayette counties.
Griggs and Lycans are charged with two counts each of breaking and entering, grand larceny and conspiracy. Riggs' son will likely be charged in juvenile court.
