Kanawha County sheriff’s deputies have arrested a St. Albans man in connection with a home invasion in St. Albans and are looking for another suspect.
Nick Trent Hanson, 18, of 385 W. Main St. was charged with burglary, robbery and wanton endangerment in connection with the home invasion that occurred Monday morning on Maryland Avenue, according to a news release from Capt. Sean Crosier of the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office.
The victims said they awoke to noises in the home to see two suspects using handguns to force another home occupant into a bedroom, where a 1-year-old was sleeping. The release said the suspects were attempting to steal items to sell for narcotics. The homeowner dialed 911, and the suspects fled. Once outside, the suspects fired several rounds into the home with the infant and other occupants still inside. The bullets penetrated the walls inside the home.
Crosier said the occupants identified the suspects as Hanson and Cody Hudson, 18 or 19, of St. Albans, who remains at large with outstanding warrants for the above charges.
Anyone with information on Hudson’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office at 304- 357-0169.
Kanawha County sheriff's deputies are investigating a home invasion that occurred outside St. Albans in which one of the suspects fleeing from the scene reportedly fired a shot that went inside the residence.
Kanawha County Deputy J.W. Eary responded to 122 1/2 Maryland Ave. outside the city limits of St. Albans at about 4:30 a.m. Monday, according to a news release from the Kanawha County Sheriff's Office. Metro 911 received a call that armed intruders had entered the residence.
Eary met with the victim, Taylor Womack, who said he, his girlfriend, their child and another female were sleeping when two males gained entry to the residence through an unlocked window. Womack told the deputy that both males were brandishing small caliber handguns.
Womack told the deputy that that both suspects had bandanas partially covering their faces, but he believes he knows their identity. At some point, the child escaped the residence and placed a 911 call. The suspects then reportedly fled the residence without taking any items of value. At least one suspect reportedly fired a shot back in the direction of the residence as they were fleeing. Eary reported that one round penetrated the exterior front wall of the home and lodged in a bedroom wall. No one was injured during the incident.
The case has been turned over to the Kanawha Bureau of Investigation.
