MAN, W.Va. — The West Virginia State Police recently arrested a Man resident after he allegedly stole items from a home, obtained a credit card in someone else’s name and stole a prescription.
Trooper Z.S. Holden, with the WVSP, reports he received a complaint for grand larceny from the Man area.
The victim allegedly told Holden he had been in treatment at a hospital in Huntington, W.Va. and when he returned home, several items worth more than $1,000 were missing.
The victim alleged Kit Rozzell, 38, of Man, had committed the crime.
After contacting a local scrap yard, the victim reportedly learned a boat matching the description of one had owned had recently been scraped by Rozzell for $30.
Rozzell also allegedly opened a credit card in the victim’s name and used it to charge $366 worth of merchandise.
The victim was reportedly contacted by the card issuer.
Rozzell reportedly signed for and then kept the victim’s shipment of oxycodone from the Postal Service.
The victim is still missing several items.
Rozzell is charged with felony counts of grand larceny, fraudulent use of a credit card and obtaining a prescription by false pretense.
