Two men were charged with two counts of breaking and entering and grand larceny from two incidents at Pinch Elementary School.
Larry Allen Boner, 18, of Quick and Cody Alan Fields, 23, of Elkview were arraigned on the charges Friday in Kanawha County Magistrate Court, according to magistrate court documents.
In the complaints, Capt. G.S. Young of the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office said State Police were called to the school Oct. 10 to investigate a break-in after two suspects forced their way in through a window at the rear of the school. The thieves stole a laptop computer, prescription medication and miscellaneous food items. Surveillance video revealed the type of clothing the white male suspects were wearing.
On Thursday, deputies discovered the school had been broken into again. They searched the building, but they could not find anyone. Video surveillance shows what appeared to be the same two white males breaking into the school, the complaint said. The suspects attempted to steal food items, but they were not successful and fled the school, the complaint said.
Capt. Sean Crosier with the sheriff's office said the two suspects confessed to the crimes and returned the laptop computer to investigators.
Bond for each of the two suspects was set at $5,000.
