An alarm investigation, and a broken door at CVS Pharmacy has led to a felony charge against a Buckhannon man.
Khori W. Simmons, 22, was charged with felony destruction of property by an officer of the Weston Police Department after responding to an alarm at CVS Pharmacy on Monday, Nov. 27.
According to the criminal complaint, officers responded to the alarm and found the glass shattered on both the sliding front door and a large side window of the business.
The officers noticed Simmons, who they describe as wearing dark clothing, walking away from the area, and they made the arrest after a review of the security camera footage showed a male in dark clothing throw a piece of the entrance sign at the window.
The officer also alleges that he saw glass shards on Simmons’ clothing when he spoke with him. The complaint goes on to state that Simmons admitted to breaking the window out of anger.
In an unrelated arrest, Christopher W. Casto, 39, of Walkersville, was charged with third-offense shoplifting, a felony, by a member of the Lewis County Sheriff’s Department.
The criminal complaint
alleges that security camera footage shows Casto removing price tags from clothing at a local business before concealing the merchandise and leaving the store without paying.
The compliant notes that Casto was previously convicted of shoplifting in May, 2016, and October, 2017.
