CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A second suspect has been charged in the theft of several brass light fixtures from the West Virginia Veterans Memorial in Charleston.
Media outlets report that 37-year-old Bryan Allen Letart of Charleston was charged Tuesday with grand larceny, transferring and receiving stolen property and conspiracy. A criminal complaint filed in Kanawha County Magistrate Court alleges that Letart helped Amanda Suzanne Young of Charleston remove 14 9-inch brass rings from light fixtures surrounding the memorial sometime before Nov. 18.
Police said the 32-year-old Young sold at least five fixtures to a recycling company last week.
Young is charged with transferring and receiving property, grand larceny and conspiracy.
Both defendants are being held in South Central Regional Jail.
