A complaint was filed in the Magistrate Court of Logan County by the West Virginia State Police.

The victim told the officer he had seen his ex-wife, Jeannie Pruitt, 36, of Chapmanville, leaving his road in the community of Chapmanville. He told the officer his ex-wife stopped him in the road and told him she hoped he liked the surprise she left him.

The victim told the officer he went on home to observe that his and his new girlfriend’s vehicle had been keyed and that dog feces had been used to write obscene words on his car. He also told the officer that inside the residence, the sinks had been stopped up and had water running over onto the floor, which damaged several parts of the residence.

The officer was advised there was a gun missing out of a safe and a TV and DVD player were missing from the residence.

The officer was told and observed the victim’s mattresses had been cut and the victim’s couch had been damaged.

The victim advised the officer Ms. Pruitt left a message on his phone saying she hopes he likes the the surprise that she left him.

Pruitt was arrested and charged with burglary and destruction of property. Her bond was set at $2,000.
