Stolen items are recovered

Items that were stolen in a breaking-and-entering incident at Belington Middle School last week have been found, authorities say.

West Virginia State Police in Barbour County responded to a single-vehicle accident on Sept. 12 that led to the recovery of stolen items from BMS, including a laptop and money bags, Chief D.J. Harris of the Belington Police Department said.

The items were reported stolen on Sept. 10, when the Belington Police Department responded to a reported breaking and entering at the school, according to a release from the Belington Police Department. “Windows and doors were broken, leaving behind DNA evidence,” the release stated.

“The equipment has been recovered,” said Dr. Joseph Super, superintendent of Barbour County schools. “We appreciate the swiftness that the authorities used to address the issue.”

A suspect’s name has not yet been released.
