Kanawha sheriff’s deputies followed footprints in the snow for three miles before they said they found a suspect they arrested on a breaking and entering charge.
Tommy Edward Clark was arrested Sunday on a breaking and entering charge on Washington Street in South Charleston, according to a news release from the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department.
Deputies initially responded to Mazella Quarries on Oakhurst Drive near Charleston for a reported breaking and entering. The owner of the business saw a man wearing a camouflage top and pants, black boots and a black beanie hat enter a trailer on his property. When the owner approached the trailer, the man fled through the woods. The owner then dialed 911 and told a dispatcher at Metro 911 what had happened.
Two deputies followed fresh boot prints in the snow for about three miles. The release said the deputies then met with officers of the South Charleston Police Department and located Clark at a residence on Washington Street. Clark’s clothing and appearance matched the description given by the owner of the quarry, deputies said.
Clark was taken to South Central Regional Jail to await arraignment on an outstanding warrant and an additional charge of breaking and entering for the incident at the rock quarry.
