Thieves Face Charges

Wednesday morning Kanawha County Sheriff's deputies were called to a burglary on Kanawha Boulevard East, and deputies think the male and female suspects made several trips into the home while the victim had barricaded herself inside. Finally, when the victim was able to get to the phone and call police, a deputy was there within six minutes. The Kanawha Bureau of Investigation executed a search warrant on a room at the Budget Host Inn just outside of Charleston where the suspects were staying. Thomas Hager Jr has been charged with Nighttime Burglary and Assault During the Commission of a Felony. Charges are forthcoming for the female suspect. Detectives think property recovered from the room may be from thefts both in and outside of Kanawha County.
