Two people have been arrested and charged with daytime burglary after deputies said they broke into a Kanawha County home and made off with valuables, including war medals.
Billy Woods Jr., 44, of Falling Rock and Paulette Dickey, 52, of Charleston have been charged with daytime burglary.
In the last two weeks, a home on Spencer Road in the Clendenin area of Kanawha County has been robbed at least four times, deputies said. The burglars made off with numerous items including furniture and an ATV, but deputies said something far more sentimental was taken during the incidents.
The victim's daughter was serving in the U.S. Air Force on an explosives disposal team in Iraq, when she was killed by an exploding ordinate, according to news a release from deputies. She was just 23 years old and honored posthumously with a Bronze Medal and Purple Heart Medal, both of which deputies said are missing and believed to be stolen. Her U.S. Air Force dress blue uniforms also are missing. Those uniforms may have the name tag of "Loncki."
Now deputies need your help to find other people they believe to be connected to the burglaries. They are looking for a white Chevrolet truck that has tinted windows, step side, Z-71, chrome brush guard on the front. Deputies said in the back of the truck it shows a very expensive handcrafted exterior door stolen during the burglary. Step sides and the chrome brush guard should help people identify the vehicles.
They also are looking for a dark blue, two-door Blazer with a missing front grill.
Anyone with any information about the burglaries or who can identify the suspect vehicles is asked to contact the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office at 304-357-0169.
