The case of the Elkins man accused of stealing items from the Central Baptist Church was bound over to Randolph County Circuit Court this week.

Matthew Ray, 24, of Elkins, and his attorney, James Hawkins, waived Ray's right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday in Randolph County Magistrate Court.

Ray is charged with breaking and entering, a felony, for allegedly stealing items from the Central Baptist Church, including a gold flag topper.

He is also facing three drug-related charges - operating or attempting to operate a clandestine drug laboratory, a felony; possession of precursors used to manufacture meth, a felony; and delivery of a controlled substance, methamphetamine, a felony.

Harris was charged with five felony counts of attempted malicious assault Feb. 9 following an incident in which he allegedly threatened to injure five people inside Roxie's Tattoo Parlor in Elkins.

Lanham had been charged with child neglect creating risk of injury, a felony, stemming from an incident that occurred in February during which she allegedly refused to take custody of her grandchild, for whom she is the court-ordered guardian.
