With Power Out, Thieves Active

Bad enough that the recent storms plunged much of eastern Kanawha County into darkness. Now, State Troopers have busted what they saw was a major theft ring that took advantage of people whose power was out. Investigators say Kristina Griggs, Dustin Lycan and Griggs' 17-year-old son stole more than ten thousand dollars were of items from homes, stores, storage facilities and gas stations in Kanawha and Fayette Counties while the juice was off. Everything from guns to power tools to cigarettes and condoms. Even a generator and a tanning bed were allegedly stolen.
